Leftover Salmon banjo player Andy Thorn was featured on an episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. Host Kelly Clarkson highlighted Thorn’s recent videos of his playing banjo for a wild fox outside the musician’s home near Boulder, Colorado.

Part of Clarkson’s “What I’m Liking” on social media segment, Thorn caught the host’s attention after posting videos while he played banjo for Foxie the fox. While speaking remotely to Thorn, Clarkson also enjoyed learning that his band was named Leftover Salmon.

“It’s been really amazing,” Thorn told Clarkson. “We’re really lucky to live on a couple of acres up in the Boulder foothills, so there’s a lot of space for animals to roam around. And I’m usually on tour a lot with my band Leftover Salmon – but when the pandemic hit, we were home all the time, and I’d just sit on my deck and play banjo every day. And one day the fox wandered over and we thought, ‘wow, I think he’s really loving the music.’ And then another day I was on a rock in the yard and he literally came and sat right next to me, and just stared at me while I played banjo and it was the coolest thing.”
