About the Artist

“With a voice reminiscent of Don McLean, McKnight traverses from old-time Appalachian tunes to contemporary folk and blues, all backed up by his dead-on guitar playing” – The Boston Globe

“The skillful songwriter’s interest in history is revealed in songs such as the Civil War ballad ‘The Road to Appomattox’ … He also works in true folkie tradition, updating lyrics to classic material such as ‘Worried Man Blues’ or reworking Robert Johnson’s ‘Crossroads’.” – The Washington Post

The nationally acclaimed Americana artist’s solo performances are like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune.
