Musical Views: Meet Andy

By 30th August 2012 May 3rd, 2017 No Comments

With beer barrels emptied and instruments being packed away, the Stowneydown Park Folk festival was all but over. All bar a solo violinist sitting on the grass, entertaining the stragglers. I had to get Andy involved in Musical Views.

Playing since a youngster (with a break or two due to fatherhood), Andy now plays regularly at Camden’s World’s End & also at the Golden Lion as part of a folk outfit. He is also involved performing a variety of events in Walthamstow.

Musical influence was not hard to find in his family. Son of a jazz fan who did weekly run to music school, and an uncle who played with some quite big names in the 60s on Boogie-woogie scene & his older brother taking him to Uni gigs.

And folk is not the only genre that Andy looks upon when producing tracks at home. Reggae, Soul, (he used to be a raver) “I take all those influences. I’d love to make dance music, I’ve got smatterings of stuff on the hard drive alternative stuff, film sound tracks, that kind of thing.”
