Andy Thorn (from the album Frontiers Like These available on Thornpipe Music)
Andy Thorn, banjoman for Leftover Salmon, offers a solo release with Frontiers Like These. An overachiever, Andy Thorn finds his place on the stage outside of his main band gig and solo work, joining a Carolina outfit of players with “Five-String Picker in a Second String Band”. Frontiers Like Thesefeatures Andy’s name on the cover though the star of the album is his banjo. Andy Thorn hops aboard a dreamscape melody for “A Banjo Oddity” while he holds on tight as “Thornado” spins and twirls while a slight Celtic breeze steers “Star of St. Elmo” and plays a reel for “Isabelle’s Wake”.
Tributing the growing cannabis industry, “Blazing New Frontiers” champions the women and men on the front lines, using the successes of Andy’s homestate of Colorado as the storyline. Frontiers Like Thesefocuses on other topical subjects when Andy Thorn sings of the environment (“Standing Still”), hope (“Coming Round Again”), freedom (“Above It All”), and advises to listen for the sound of coming change (“Warning Call”).
