Amanda & Scott Anderson

After years of playing together, Amanda and her dad Scott Anderson began performing as a duo in 2008. Amanda handles most of the lead vocals in the duo, as well as supplying sweet fiddle lines. Swampgrass master Scott Anderson adds harmony and lead vocals as well as guitar and banjo. Their repertoire includes Americana and bluegrass songs from Nickel Creek, Andrea Zonn, Alison Krauss, The Dixie Chicks, and many others. Their dazzling fiddle and banjo duets are favorites at every show. Amanda and Scott also perform together in The Scott Anderson Band and occasionally with The Bluegrass Parlor Band.

Following the critical success of his album "Rivers" and a three year stint as banjoist and vocalist with The Jim Hurst Band, Scott Anderson has teamed with his daughter Amanda on "Another Day," a tasty buffet of Americana and bluegrass tunes. In addition to Amanda on vocals and fiddle and Scott on vocals, guitar, and banjo, "Another Day" features spicy musical support from friends Michael Godwin, David McMillan, Mark Schatz, Tommy Slaughter, Cory Walker, Jarrod Walker, and Austin Wilder.

Amanda Anderson has thrived under the gentle watch of her father and Gainesville musician-extraordinaire, Scott Anderson. Now the daughter-dad duo steps out in this thoughtful, timely collection of songs, "Another Day." Surrounded by slick musicians, their star is destined to rise over the great state of Florida and shine high over the Southeast. I’m proud to be their friend and fan.

"I love this recording! It's FABULOUS!!! Awesome job! Everything about it filled my heart with so much joy, but particularly Amanda's singing - what a sweet and gorgeous tone she has to her voice!"
- Jessee Havey (formerly of The Duhks)

"This CD literally was 15 years in the making, The age Scott's daughter Amanda was at the time of the recording. It's a blessing for the Americana fan with some left over for the bluegrass folk. Smooth, saucy and wistful, but the pedal to the metal when needed. A must for any acoustic music fan.
Tom Henderson, "This Is Bluegrass" - WMNF-FM, Tampa, FL

"Another Day is excellent. How wonderful to be able to make such good music with your daughter!"
Jan Dale, Southern Style, PBS FM 106.7, Brighton North, Australia

"Another Day" is a first rate CD. Amanda is a very talented young lady. The project is very well done and it deserves to be exposed in this part of the world."
Charlie Hansen, Bluegrass Island CFCY FM Cornwall, PE, Canada

"Mighty nice job on Another Day! And Amanda is surely doing wonderfully on the fiddle and singing like she 'owns it'!"
Mark Sahlgren WMUK FM, Kalamazoo, MI
