Andrew Walesch makes his first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minn. An in-demand singer and pianist, Walesch has earned fans across the Midwest, one jazz club and piano bar at a time.
Known for his almost obsessive knowledge of the Great American Songbook, Walesch has also developed a creative relationship with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jon Vezner, who just appeared in a previous episode of Mountain Stage. Walesch includes two of Vezner’s songs in his set, along with “Bridgetop,” which was written by guitarist Jonathan Brown, who accompanies Walesch throughout this performance.
- “Speed Of Love”
- “October Song”
