Album Notes
Sleeping Bee is the new musical endeavor of longtime friends and multi-instrumentalists, Lindsey Horner and Andy Goessling. Their debut self-produced recording, Heyday Maker, showcases their wide range of musical expertise and a depth of feeling gathered from years of experience.

The music on Heyday Maker exists in that unique early 21st century area where Folk, Jazz, Celtic song forms, melodic improvisation, and original ideas all happily co-exist and vitalize each other. The recording features original pieces by both Andy and Lindsey, one by the great Keith Jarrett, one by the also great Bob Dylan and a rethinking of two compositions by the 18th century Irish bard, Turlough O’Carolan. Lindsey plays bass and various tin whistles while Andy is heard on guitars, mandolins and bouzouki. Valued friend and percussionist, Randy Crafton, adds his artistry to the proceedings.

While Andy and Lindsey have known each other since they were teenagers, their musical careers have moved in somewhat different orbits over the intervening decades. Andy grew up in rural New Jersey and Lindsey in the heart of New York City so it is perhaps not surprising that Lindsey has been more associated with Jazz and improvised musics of that urban center while Andy has been more involved in the bluegrass and roots music scenes. They have talked for years about pooling their talents and resources and doing something together but could never quite find the right time to get that promising idea off the ground – until now. Indeed, it could be fairly said that both of these musicians have spent most of their careers making other artists sound good. This recording could be seen as their chance to have their say.

Lindsey Horner has most often been heard with artists associated with the cutting edge: guitarist Bill Frisell, pianist Myra Melford, drummers Bobby Previte and Allison Miller, trumpet player Dave Douglas and many of the visionary musicians from the days of the Downtown and Knitting Factory scene in New York of the 1990’s and beyond. He also has firm roots in Irish music having played for years with non-pareil singer-songwriter, Susan McKeown and Irish music legend, Andy Irvine. He currently plays in the band of exciting Celtic fiddle virtuoso, Eileen Ivers. He also has produced five previous recordings of his own music, several more as a co-leader and played on many more as a sideman.

Multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling has enjoyed a long and varied career backing and being a part of many seminal projects in the acoustic, folk and bluegrass scenes. He has supported artists such as Garnet Rogers and the late, great Rick Danko and has served in the house band at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival backing up Greg Brown, Richard Shindell, Vance Gilbert and many others. He has played with Allman Brothers guitarist, Warren Haynes, and two of his personal Bluegrass heroes, David Bromberg and John McEuen. Currently a member of the highly regarded band, Railroad Earth, Andy was chosen, with the other members of Railroad Earth, to be a part of Phil Lesh and Friends and also helped Phil open his new club, Terrapin Crossroads in a band which included other original Grateful Dead member, Bob Weir.
