Quotes

"Andy & Judy have made several appearances here at Javawocky, and we have had the pleasure of watching them grow from openers, to split bills to headlining their own shows, and they always put on a great show with enthusiastic audience response. Their March show was no exception, bringing in one of our best crowds in recent memory, we had to bring in extra chairs! I highly recommend them and won't hesitate to book them again."

"We were honored to have Andy & Judy Daigle as our debut performers at our new library amphitheater last night. In spite of the heat we had around 25 folks for the 6pm show. Andy & Judy mesmerized the crowd with their original songs and had everyone singing along to some classic folk standards. With the sun in their faces they hit every note, blended every harmony and plucked every string perfectly. There is true talent in this duo and it is hard to believe that they are only in their first decade of performing.

"Andy and Judy Daigle performed their live folk music concert at our library in October 2016. Their performances were skilled, friendly, and energetic. During the course of the evening's program, they covered a range of songs, told stories behind some of their original compositions and developed a genuine rapport with the audience. I would recommend Andy and Judy Daigle as a wonderful addition to any venue's lineup of programs."

"Last week we had Andy and Judy, a wonderful folk singing duo, here at the Fitchburg. They performed with a diversity of instruments including mandolin, banjo, harmonica, and guitar. Their music and voices created lovely harmonies. Andy and Judy played a variety of original songs and a few covers. Especially noteworthy were two of their original songs about trains: one where you could feel, and hear, the train fading in the distance and the other from the perspective of a 6 year old riding the Orphan Train which they then tied into the novel! A great connection was made with the audience that had people singing along to the familiar songs and really enjoying the event. Andy & Judy are very professional and easy to work with.  We are definitely planning on having them back again."
                       - Cindy Morawski, Reference Librarian, Fitchburg Public Library
                            
 “Andy and Judy's music is outstanding and exceptionally crafted. They write well, they compose well, and they perform together spectacularly with captivating harmonies. The guitars and mandolin fit together perfectly behind the stunning vocals and well written lyrics. The result is world class music. I have had the pleasure to produce Concerts, Radio Shows, and TV shows with Andy and Judy. Their exceptional level of professionalism helps make the shows perfect. They are good people, and working with them is always easy. I will do so again every chance I get. Many times while doing the digital remix of a show, I got carried away and just had to stop and call Andy again to tell him how much I was enjoying their music. You will enjoy it too.”   - Bob Crownfield, Producer, Studio Session Live
      
      
“Those of us lucky enough to catch the Andy and Judy event on Sunday, March 15th were given a musical treat. The duo brings original songs to their mix of well-known folk music. The audience was happy to sing-along with those songs they knew and listened closely to the new ones written by Andy or Judy. With multiple instruments as back up, the duo sang and harmonized well. As they travel around bringing their music to new places, be sure to number yourself  among those in the audience for a satisfying musical event.”   - Janice Walz, Friends of the Schenectady County Public Library

Reviews

Andy & Judy - "Follow Your Dream" (reviewed by FolkWorld - Europe 7/2016)

     Andy (guitar, percussion, harmonica, vocals) and Judy Daigle (guitar, mandolin, piano, synthesizer) are a Boston MA based folk duo. Together with bassist Eric “Snake” Gulliksen and Greg Daigle (bass, guitar, synthesizer) and a guest appearance by Jesse Parent on accordion they recorded 10 original songs.
Judy wrote and sings most of the songs like the rollicking title track accompanied by two guitars and Eric’s driving bass pace. Andy’s story of the “Souther Tide Mill” in Quincy MA tells about the hardships of working there in 1800s, his lead vocals are backed by Judy who adds the mandolin, Eric on bass, Greg on lead guitar and Jesse on accordion complete the line-up. “Potter’s Field” is a sad Americana telling about the graveyard on Hart Island NYC for the poor and Judy mesmerizes with the melancholic piano ballad “Won’t say goodbye”, Greg adds bass and synthesizer. “Walk with me forever” is an up-beat ¾ time ode to a new love and the album ends with a breath-taking a Capella performance by the two brilliant singers on “Never goin’ back”, recorded live in New Hampshire.
Andy & Judy present their third self-produced album, their songs are beautifully crafted and performed, check them out @ www.andyjudysing.com!

                             

Andy & Judy "Follow Your Dream" (reviewed by Ladies Night House Concerts -2015)  

      “Follow Your Dream” is an up lifting CD with 10 songs full of colorful stories, inspiration and beautiful melodies showing the many musical sides of Andy and Judy with songs featuring not only guitars but also keyboards.
     “Follow Your Dream” the number one title cut is all about singing what you know and Andy and Judy have definitely been an example of following their dream with determination and zeal. “Walk your own path let your passion fuel the fire you will never know what wonders will be seen unless you follow your dream.” This is toe tapping inspirational fun at its best.
     Judy’s voice is unique and strong but also melodic and not over powering as it cuts through the air with her mesmerizing, vibrato. My favorite example is “Greatest Love Story” a 50’s style ballad with piano keeping the beat, it’s a stand out from the more folk style songs of the album and is one of my favorite songs on the CD.    
      “Souther Tide Mill” is more typical of Andy and Judy’s folk songs that transports you too a simpler but not easier time with great story telling and features Andy singing lead and Judy taking a turn on harmonies being accompanied with mandolin and accordion. Just close your eyes and it will take you away.     
     The other inspiring and uplifting song is “Glow”, “You can make it through you’re stronger than you know there’s a light inside you let it glow.” The lyrics are powerful and you BELIEVE that “you are not alone.    
     ”Walk with Me Forever” is a catchy love song, back to singing about what you know. Andy and Judy are in love and it shows, their relationship is clearly an inspiration for many of their songs. This one is upbeat with a catchy bass line and of course great harmonies!     
      “Never Goin back” is my favorite song on the CD. Recorded live and in A Capella using Andy’s baritone voice as the foundation while they play cat and mouse with their voices.  Backed by a choir, it has an “old Spiritual” feel and is really just a treat for the ears.     
     The production value is good and I recommend this CD to anyone, but especially for those who appreciate good musicianship, well written songs and amazing harmonies.     
     The power of the voice and heart propelled by the love of music gives you “Follow Your Dream” 
                
Andy & Judy - Dragonfly (reviewed by Ladies Night House Concerts - 2014)
    
“Andy and Judy Daigle’s sophomore album, Dragonfly, highlights a variety of traditional folk music with a hint of country. Although the album songs remain true to folk music, the duo’s performance is truly unique. The result is an album that not only sounds great but also has lyrical meaning and depth. For those that enjoy very well produced folk music and storytelling that resonates meaning this is a must listen.”
