    • When Andrew McConathy picked up his first guitar at the age of 12 years old, he had no way of knowing the road would lead him to become a singer-songwriter, music manager and successful festival producer. Alongside a wealth of natural influences, McConathy remembers being deeply affected by the free-spirited community vibe of The String Cheese Incident and the Grateful Dead, Jerry Jeff Walker, Steve Earl, Robert Earl Keen, and other alternative country-folk-rock musicians who passed through his community or managed to make it to his CD player as a teen. It wasn’t until his college years when McConathy’s multitude of inspirations began to take shape. In 2006, he set out to produce his first outdoor festival on the banks of the Colorado River just minutes from his home stomping grounds. Known lovingly as YarmonyGrass Festival, the festival aimed to feature independent improvisational artists with a zeal for stringed instruments and electronica alike. This immersion into Colorado’s musical underworld had McConathy mixing with and meeting dozens of nationally renowned musicians – including his future teacher, guitar master Scott Law. Featuring three days of camping and music in the canyon surrounding the Colorado River, YarmonyGrass has shown exponential growth in half a decade. A road riddled with bumps and last minute opportunities also provided the young artist a spring board for which to launch his wildest dreams – learning to record and perform music of his own.
