7:00 PM, An Sbin

Shortly after calling Lancaster home, Andy began “cutting his teeth” on writing new musical arrangements; from jazz to latin to country to funk to R&B. Surrounded by many of his local musical idols, Andy gathered a band for a single-day live tracking session in fall 2012 at Progressive Studios in Elizabethtown to “read down” some ideas. 10 Christmas songs in 8 hours in 1 room. Each song a different genre; each one an experiment in writing and performing a new or unfamiliar style of music. The veteran musicians bring the music to life, capturing the spirit of Christmas and a variety of musical idioms seamlessly from track to track. “It’s Beginning To Sound A Lot Like Christmas” swings, jives, grooves, eases, rocks and burns through classic Christmas tunes with Mowatt’s unique spin. A very limited CD release will be available the night of the performance; digital downloads online: follow the Bandcamp link.

Andy has played guitar, arranged and performed music with “Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam”, “8-string 4-tet”, “Tuck Ryan Band” and Palace Theatre (Manchester, NH), toured with the band “herbie” and the Princess Cruises orchestra, and currently plays at American Music Theatre (Lancaster, PA). He graduated from Lebanon Valley College with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Recording Technology.
