MISSOULA – Skilled guitarist Andy McKee will perform at the George and Jane Dennison Theatre at the University of Montana on Thursday, Oct. 3. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.

Guitarist Magazine hails McKee as “your new favorite acoustic guitarist” and it’s easy to see why. He is well-known for his finger-style approach on the acoustic guitar, along with his uncanny ability to use his guitar for percussion, rhythm and melody all at the same time.

The Kansas native quickly rose to fame after his live performance of the song “Drifting,” which caught viewers’ attention and gained more than 44 million views on YouTube.

Since his discovery, McKee has been on multiple tours, put out a variety of albums and has performed with well-known artists such as Josh Groban. Recently, McKee announced his plans to record and release small but frequent collections of music in 2013 and 2014. The Missoula show will be one of the few he plans to play.

Tickets currently are on sale and cost $28 for the general public and $18 for students. An extra fee of $2 will be added to tickets purchased the day of the show. Tickets are available at all GrizTix locations including Worden’s Market, Southgate Mall, The Source in the University Center, MSO Hub and the Adams Center Box Office; by calling 1-888-MONTANA or online at
