The sounds of acoustic strumming filled Albert Taylor Hall Friday night.
Andy McKee, world-renowned acoustic guitarist and Topeka native, performed for a packed Albert Taylor Hall, as part of the Emporia Arts Center's seasonal events.
McKee gained fame via Youtube, when he started posting videos of his guitar-playing. He's racked up over 150 million hits on his videos. Friday's performance will appear on video as well -- the concert was filmed by Through A Glass Productions of Lawrence, and will eventually become a concert DVD available for sale.
McKee has performed with the likes of Prince, and been the opening act for progressive rock band Dream Theater. After going to a music convention in a few days, and taking some time off, he says he'll be back on the road.
McKee says his type of music is very popular in India, New Zealand and Australia, but Kansas will still be home -- even if he's relatively anonymous.
