Ben Andrews and Adoption


Yugoslav-American Musician

Andrews was born in Yugoslavia and adopted by an American diplomatic family there. He became interested in the guitar as a child but did not become entirely focused on the instrument until his family returned to the USA in 1972, while he was in high school. He plays mostly American folk music, and has recorded an album, Night Ride.
