Andy Fairweather Low & the Low Riders
Due to unforeseen circumstances the performance by Andy at the Bloomsbury Theatre has had to be postponed and will be re-scheduled for a new date in early 2013.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Andy Fairweather Low’s pedigree is the stuff rock dreams are made of. He first came to prominence at the vanguard of the new youthful expression of music as the lead singer in Amen Corner. The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as 'Bend Me Shape Me', 'Hello Suzy', '(If Paradise is) Half As Nice' are internationally remembered to this day. But if you were paying close attention you might have picked up a clue in the magnificent 'Gin House' to Andy's future musical collaborations.
Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, The Band, Elton John, Roger Waters, Richard and Linda Thompson, Dave Gilmour, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Donald 'Duck' Dunn, Jimmy Page, Ronnie Lane, Linda Ronstadt, Roddy Frame, Emmylou Harris, Joe Satriani, the Bee Gees, Jeff Beck, The Impressions, Lonnie Donegan, Ringo Starr, Steve Gadd, David Sanborn, Benmont Tench, Warren Zevon, Charlie Watts, Mary J. Blige, Dave Edmunds, Georgie Fame, Bonnie Raitt, Otis Rush, Phil Collins, Van Morrison, Gerry Rafferty, Chris Rea, Buddy Guy, Chris Barber, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown, Pete Townshend... and hundreds more.
Now following a solo path, his first solo album in 24 years Sweet Soulful Music was released late in 2007 followed by The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low which was released in the UK in June 2008 and the Live DVD followed hot on it's heels.
A world tour as musical director with Roger Waters band then a European tour with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings might be difficult to top for most people - but not for Andy Fairweather Low who just segued smoothly into a major solo tour last summer with some of the world's finest musicians in his band. Andy has just completed a tour with The Low riders in Germany this April and comes to us fresh from Eric Clapton's 2008 UK tour.
If you just remember Andy's early work and major solo hits such as 'Wide Eyed And Legless', you're in for a treat - there's so much more – you may have caught his appearance on Later With Jools earlier this year and his new show includes songs from all aspects of this man’s extraordinary career including the 2006 release 'Sweet Soulful Music'.
This show is a unique and superlative musical evening. Anyone who saw the band opening the shows for Eric Clapton last year or Robert Cray in the summer will agree with crowds from Glastonbury & Trowbridge Music Festivals or Colne Blues & Cambridge Rock festivals that this is one show you will not want to miss - book early.to see the legend with his band The Low Riders Dave Bronze - Bass & Vocals, Paul Beavis – Drums & Nick Pentelow - Sax & Clarinet.
