Bird is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler and songwriter who picked up his first violin at 4 and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear. As a teenager, Bird became interested in early jazz, country blues and folk music, synthesizing them into a unique brand of pop music. His most recent studio album, Are You Serious, was released in April 2016. See: www.andrewbird.net for more on Bird. Sponsored by KCBX 90.1 FM and The Krush 92.5 FM.
