Andy Baum payed with Hilary James and Simon Mayor as part of Slim Panatella and the Mellow Virginians, and with Dave in The Bacuma Boys.

He has appeared at the Grand Ol’ Opry, was a one time member of the ‘almost legendary’ Clayson and the Argonauts, and gigged with his Western Swing/Cajun band Drew’s Brew throughout the 1980s.
Andy B (guitar and mandolin) and Dave (guitar, slide, mandocello and harmonica) have been looking for a great fiddler for a very long time, and Andy T is just that! Too many Andys, but it’s only a name…
