"One Virginia Night", a limited edition live CD and bonus DVD set from Andrew McKnight & Beyond Borders, which also features founding Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member Les Thompson. Captured in front of an enthusiastic capacity crowd near McKnight's northwestern Virginia home, OVN is a crisply delivered collection of concert favorites and a few lesser known gems drawn from his five solo CD discography. It includes two songs co-written with Thompson (“Made by Hand”, “Surveillance”) as well as their smoldering bluesy take on the traditional "Worried Man Blues" and an original each from bandmates Stephanie Thompson ("What Kind of Person", first recorded by Rani Arbo & Salamander Crossing) and Lisa Taylor ("It Means a Lot"). It’s Les Thompson’s first band and first full album credit since he left the Dirt Band after the "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" album came out.
The foursome bring an energetic and eclectic perspective to McKnight's songs - "beyond Appalachian, beyond blues, beyond folk". Valuing the artistry of taut arrangements over flashy instrumental jams, they have earned acclaim in particular for their exquisite 3 and 4-part vocal harmonies as well as the unusual and constantly changing combinations of instruments. After touring primarily as a solo acoustic artist for the past 15 years, McKnight plays electric guitar about half the time. Les Thompson's signature clawhammer banjo is a big part of the band's sound. And while Taylor sticks primarily to the drums, the Thompsons trade instruments frequently throughout - upright bass, acoustic guitar, and percussion.
"harmony so tight you'd swear they were all related. Andrew's songs really shine, as does his amazing guitar work, from delicate fingerpicking on an acoustic, to hot swing on an electric. Arrangements go from bluegrass to country rock to jazz/blues....It all ends with their encore, "Surveillance," a little poke at the Patriot Act, featuring Andrew's right-on Jimmie Vaughan-style playing. The CD comes with a DVD and if anything else, proves that only four people recorded this album. Four very talented people. Very highly recommended." - Jamie Anderson, Minor 7th
