Hi, everybody! Sorry to put out my ignorance, but what does Andy Fairweather-Low ( on tour with Chris in 2006)perform? Singer, musician or compere or what? I would like to know. Thank you. Message Board is great. Best wishes Poul Villum.
Andy is from Cardiff, in South Wales, and first started in the 1960s leading a group called the 'Amen Corner'
In later years he has played with many artists, and for the greater part of the last 13 years was an integral part of Eric Clapton's Band. He now plays with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, and his own Trio. He has had a solo career, and has many albums to his credit, his latest album is due out in a few months time on the 'Proper' label.
With The Big Chris barber Band he plays guitar and sings skiffle, gospel and blues. I saw him at Cheltenham and Llandudno, and he was excellent.
