ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andrew’s roots were put down initially in the Railway Hotel, Portsmouth, a folk club in England. Youngest of three children Andrew grew up in a musical family and soon took to learning guitar. Actually his dad refused to carry the double bass he wanted to play in the car – a wise choice in the end!

Song writing has always been a part of Andrew and no matter how convinced he is that the latest song is the last song in him there is always another and then another waiting patiently.

The latest CD In the Blood features songs and tales by Northumbrian author and storyteller David Adam and is a departure into folklore. It also features two songs by his sister, a poet and songwriter.

He moved to Northumberland in the mid-1970’s and was at once captivated by the countryside and the far horizons. It has become very much a part of him life through hill walking taking in its atmosphere and truly inspired scenery.

His first CD, ‘Bless by an Angel’ in 1999, really tidied up and put together thirty years of past song writing, closing the door on a chapter of his life. Once it was published he felt free to pursue his real inspirations within Northumberland, the beginnings of which are shown in Northumbria’s Pride (2000) and Walk With Me (2001). In particular Holy Island has been a special place and it is hard to express it in a song, but he always look forward to its special atmosphere. Streams of Life (2003) and Pools of Light (2004) compliment this series of CD’s.
Both ‘Northumbria’s Pride’ and ‘Walk With Me’ are moving towards the especial completeness within song writing that musicians look for. He is now more comfortable within his own guitar style and feels that his closeness to this land, its stones and heritage comes through.

He plays at various festivals & folk venues throughout the year and has had appearances on National and Local radio and television. He particularly enjoys appearing at the Alnwick International Music Festival where so many diverse cultures and musical backgrounds come together.

His spare time is spent song writing and working for a living
