Ken Macy


Andy Cummings

Ken Macy‘s newest CD “Outlines” has been nominated for Best CD.   Metronome Magazine’s review says “Over his last five albums, Ken Macy has proven himself to be a diverse and creative songwriter. His newest offering, Outlines is just more proof of his burgeoning talents. Good Stuff! ”  We certainly think so!

Andy Cummings‘ has two nominations: Best CD for his newest collection of work “Backyard Superhero”  and one for Best Solo Acoustic Act.  Andy has been called a ‘human jukebox’.  He is known for a repertoire that spans many generations and genres of music, all done with style.  When he is not teaching guitar lessons at his City Music Studio, he is sure to be performing nearby.

Ken and Andy have received several WMA awards in the past.  Good Luck in 2013!

YOU can get private guitar instruction from either of these great musicians at the City Music Studios.  Call to find out more about their schedules.
