Newfoundland’s Duane Andrews and Craig Young released their debut album “Charlie’s Boogie” Tuesday. Their sound will take you from the traditional music of Newfoundland and Labrador, down through the Appalachian Mountains into the land of bluegrass and country music and across the ocean to French cabarets filled with gypsy and swing music. These two consummate guitar players complement their enchanting guitar styles with an occasional song from Young’s rich repertoire. Individually, these two have amassed their share of awards and accolades with Andrews winning awards from the USA Songwriting Competition, the Independent Music Awards, the ECMA and MusicNL, and Young winning the Canadian Country Music Association All-Star Band Award four times in the guitarist category, along with having several Top 40 singles to his writing credit. Some of Andrews’ highlights include performances at the Montreal and Cork jazz and Newport and Mariposa folk festivals, while Young spent 10 years touring the world based out of Nashville as a member of Terri Clark's band and playing with superstars such as Ricky Skaggs in his downtime.
