Four-time Grammy winning instrumentalist Andy Leftwich began playing the fiddle at the age of six, entering his first contest at seven, and winning the National Championship for Beginners at the age of twelve. Soon after, he made his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry with Mike Snider, and began touring professionally at fifteen. In 2001, he joined multi-award winning bluegrass group Kentucky Thunder, playing alongside the legendary Ricky Skaggs, where he remained for 16 years. During that time, Andy completed a solo album (“Ride”, Skaggs Family Records) and recorded two critically acclaimed albums as a member of Three Ring Circle (with dobro player Rob Ickes and bassist Dave Pomeroy). Andy has become one of Nashville’s most sought after studio musicians lending his talents to artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Keith and Kristyn Getty, Point of Grace, Ricky Skaggs, Bruce Hornsby, Dailey & Vincent, Alan Jackson, Taylor Swift, Ronnie Millsap, Craig Morgan, and many more. Most recently, Andy joined the artist roster of Mountain Home Music and released a brand new instrumental album, “The American Fiddler”, available now on all digital platforms and at andyleftwich.com.
