We are pleased to welcome the return of one of the most respected musicians in the world, Andy Fairweather Low, back to our stage.
Andy rose to prominence in the 1960s as the front man and guitarist for chart topping teen idol band Amen Corner. His vocals and his distinctive voice were the perfect lead for the group. Amen Corner scored 6 memorable hits between 1967 and 1969 with (If Paradise is) Half As Nice reaching number 1 in January 1969. During the 70s Andy formed Fairweather starting a successful solo career, releasing his fourth solo album in 1980. During this time he also appeared on The Who’s albums ‘Who Are You’ and on their ‘Its Hard’ album in 1982 and contributed to Pete Townshend’s tour in 1993.
From the work with The Who, Andy moved on to become the in-demand player and ultimate Guitarist to the stars, building an extraordinary reputation that has endured to the test of time. He worked with ex-Small Faces and Faces bass player Ronnie Lane and in the 90s joined Eric Clapton’s band and stayed until 2003. Andy was also a regular player with George Harrison, appearing on his ‘Live in Japan’ album and, in 2002, playing several of the lead guitar parts for the Harrison tribute, ‘The Concert for George’. One of Fairweather Low’s longest musical relationships, however, has been as musical director with Roger Waters. The two have worked together since Waters’ ‘Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking’ tour of America in 1985. Since that time Andy has contributed to two of Waters’ albums – ‘Radio K.A.O.S’ in 1987 and ‘Amused to Death’ in 1992 – and played guitar and bass on the 1999-2002 ‘In the Flesh’ world tour. He also rejoined Waters for the ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ tour more recently.
Andy is also a regular member of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, the consequence of another relationship that stretches back to the mid-Eighties. Fairweather Low and Wyman first worked together at the Small Faces’ legendary bass player Ronnie Lane’s A.R.M.S. – Action for Research into Multiple Sclerosis – benefit concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1983. In 2006 Andy released ‘Sweet Soulful Music’. It reunited Fairweather Low with producer Glyn Johns - and features bassist David Bronze (Eric Clapton, Robin Trower, Procol Harum), drummer Henry Spinetti (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Roger Daltrey) and John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick (Bob Marley, The Who, Pete Townshend) together with Roger Waters’ back-up singers Katie Kissoon, Carol Kenyon and PP Arnold.
Twenty-six years is a long wait but ‘Sweet Soulful Music’ signalled a welcome return for one of the UK’s most distinctive artists, as heartily endorsed by many of the world’s greatest talents.
