Andy Squint is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and educator. Playing guitar and harmonica in his virtuosic solo show he has opened for many national touring acts including Robert Cray. While working as a sideman on guitar Andy has performed with blues greats such as Henry Gray (Howlin’ Wolf band), Chris Thomas King, Kenny Neal, and Washboard Chaz. He currently works with the Gate City Divas, Big Bump and the Stun Gunz and fronts a side project The Zydeco Rouxsters where he plays accordion and rubboard. In the studio Andy has produced two CDs of his original songs (Goin’ to the Racetrack, Down By the River) and appeared as a guest slide guitarist on Larry Garner’s track “Someplace for Evil” (Here Today Gone Tomorrow). From his first performance at the age of six, Andy has continued to entertain audiences across the country. Like the bluesmen of days gone by, Andy has lived in many states over the years. He is now based in High Point, North Carolina, where he teaches private lessons and participates in Blues in the Schools programs.
“Listening to the sounds of bluesman Andy Squint reminds listeners of a musical tradition that goes back to the days of dimly-lit Louisiana juke joints and early 20th century bayou living. ”
— Andrea Brill Relish Winston-Salem Journal
“Squint’s music echoes back to such greats as Howlin’ Wolf and Elmore James. Laying down a wailing set of Louisiana blues and zydeco,”
