Andy Wilkinson

Lubbock, TX

A writer and singer of contemporary Western folk music, Andy is a poet with a guitar.
Through his songs, he tells stories of the American West of yesterday and today, mixing the music with history and sociology. Andy’s stories, many of which are based on the life and times of his distant uncle, Charlie Goodnight, are taken from the factual world, using emotions and beliefs, and philosophies, myths and legends.
With a varied background-college and graduate school, a dozen years as a policeman and an equal stretch as a businessman-he now draws his wages as a full-time writer and performer.
