Andrew Alli was drawn towards the James River from a very early age. What began as a magical waterway he visited sparingly as a child eventually flowed into one of the strongest links between his career, his passions, and his life. Andrew invites us into his world of trail management with the James River Park System, shares his journey as a blues musician and harmonica player, and speaks to how his job and his music, just like our communities, are profoundly interconnected through the river.
