Thanks to an iPhone, we can share a some video from a rare Andrew McKnight & Beyond Borders trio set at last weekend's inaugural Spirit of the Valley Festival. This great new festival was held on the historic On Sunny Slope Farm in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Harrisonburg VA, and the great lineup also included Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Town Mountain and The Howlin' Brothers.

Lisa Taylor penned "Heavy on Your Lips" and though they've been performing it for the last couple years, this is their first performance of it without Les on the banjo. She could do it a cappella and it would still rip, but this is lots of sass and sultry fun with her on Andrew's Martin MC-68, Stephanie on the upright bass, and Andrew sliding about on the dobro.

Big thanks to Andrew's also superbly talented cousin Valerie Rosa for filming it :) Enjoy!
