Nominated for Instrumental Album of the Year at this year's Junos, Cats and Dogs further establishes Andrew as one of Canada's top acoustic innovators.

In addition to creating the original content for the recording, Andrew also plays mandolin, mandola, mandocello, guitar and fiddle on the recording.
