Besides being a fabulous acoustic blues artist Andy, a Dorchester native, serves as Folk Alliance International Traditional Studies Coordinator, his role being "advocate for traditional music and its players."
"Andy Cohen grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the Folk Music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At sixteen, he saw Rev. Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant, America¹s great musical fountainhead. Although he's done other things- a certain amount of writing, and physical labor from dishwashing and railroading to archaeology, playing the old tunes is what he does best."

Cairo Blues by Henry Spaulding (1929), performed by Andy Cohen.
