"Follow Your Dream CD review"

"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 @!" - FolkWorld - Europe

"Andy & Judy Concert review"

"We had a beautiful evening outside under the stars and the ginkgo trees last night at Twelve Moons Coffee House. Andy and Judy wowed the crowd with their beautiful harmonies and excellent song-writing!" - Twelve Moons Coffeehouse

"Fitchburg Public Library Concert Review"

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."

"Cotuit Library Concert review"

What a great concert! Andy and Judy's songs have real heart and soul and the way they introduce each one really pulls you in.
They brought to us their rich voices and honest lyrics in an engaging performance.
Simply put, it was a real pleasure to have them at the Cotuit Library, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful program. - Frances Bausman, Programs and Outreach Coordinator at the Cotuit Library -

"Studio Session Live review"

“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 -

"CD Review - Follow Your Dream"

“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” - Ladies Night House Concerts (June 04, 2015) -

Still working on that hot first release.



New England natives Andy & Judy Daigle have been singing together since 2009, first performing at open mic nights where they featured cover versions of songs written by favorites John Prine, Bob Dylan, Ian and Sylvia, and Peter, Paul & Mary.

 Today, this talented folk duo performs regularly at libraries, coffeehouses and concert venues where they have been featured artists, openers and headliners blending popular folk covers with their growing list of original songs. They tour throughout the U.S. Midwest and East Coast states, and have been featured on popular folk music radio programs.

An Andy & Judy performance elicits sing-a-longs and smiles as they ask the audience to participate on old favorites, and thoughtful listening as the pair introduces their own compelling songs. Their close harmonies blend Judy’s evocative alto and Andy’s deep baritone. Beginning instrumentally with a classic folk guitar base, Andy & Judy have deepened their sound through the addition of mandolin, banjo, piano, harmonica, and with support musicians, bass and percussion. The instrumental complexity presented on their three CDs, Riverbend, Dragonfly, and Follow Your Dream, support the increasing lyrical depth of their compositions.

 Their songwriting style has emerged from old-time traditional and folk music, and includes country, gospel and popular music influences. They have written many songs about historical people, places and events. Their songs are carefully crafted and performed so that the listener experiences all of the emotions woven into their music.

 Andy & Judy each come from musical families and their performances draw from their participation in various choruses and choirs throughout their lives. Judy is from southeastern Massachusetts where she was introduced to folk music at an early age through her mom’s Peter, Paul and Mary records. She started guitar lessons at age 6 with the hope of joining her church folk group. A few years later she stopped playing guitar and joined the school choir. When she started performing with Andy she went back to the guitar and added piano and mandolin to the mix.

 Andy was born in Maine and spent most of his youth in upstate New York, where he grew up listening to folk and church music while traveling with his family before eventually settling in the Boston area. He has taught himself to play guitar, banjo and the harmonica.
