Musician of the Year 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Andy is a warm and emotive performer, modestly engaging his audiences with his self-deprecating wit and then flooring them with downright staggering musicianship. There are few melodeon players who put so much feeling into their playing, whether it is a set of dance tunes, or accompaniment to a slow English ballad.
Playing with Chris Wood he became one of the most influential and enduring duos on the scene. He's played with Kate Rusby, John McCusker, Sting and Martin Simpson too.
'Andy is the consummate accompanist, harmonically, rhythmically and melodically and an exquisite soloist. There is no one I'd rather work with' - Martin Simpson.
