McKnight is joined on this West Coast tour by Sean Kelly on upright bass and harmony vocals.

Since permanently leaving his corporate environmental engineering career in 1996, McKnight has trapsed across half a million miles of blue highways and small towns nationwide earning a wealth of critical acclaim and enthusiastic fan response for his five CDs and captivating performances.

McKnight offers entertaining stories delivered with just the right touches of down home humor, causing one concertgoer to label him "equal parts Robert Frost, William Least Heat-Moon and Jeff Foxworthy!"
