Low and Behold – Andy Fairweather Low is back at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall

Andy Fairweather Low’s career really is something to marvel at. The one-time teen sensation front man of Amen Corner, who hit No.1 in 1969 with (If Paradise Is) Half As Nice, is more successful than ever… despite the public at large not necessarily being aware of it.

The 60s saw Amen Corner clock up hit after pop hit with songs such as Bend Me Shape Me, Hello Suzy, and the chart-topping (If Paradise is) Half As Nice. When the group split in 1969, most of the band reformed as Fairweather, but they managed only one hit; Natural Sinner. The solo career that followed for Andy brought plenty of chart success but little financial reward. "I did my first solo album Spider Jiving and by the time I made my third one I was still paying for that first one." he says. But times were about to change… Andy had picked up his guitar and started making some notable contributions to other people’s records, and having played on The Who’s It’s Hard album, he suddenly found himself in-demand as the number one guitarist to the stars.

Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Roger Waters, Van Morrison and hundreds more, and has played at some of the most important concerts ever staged – The Concert for George in memory of George Harrison at the Royal Albert Hall to name but one. His career has undoubtedly been the stuff of rock 'n' roll dreams. But perhaps it was inevitable that one day he would be tempted to return to the studio in his own right.

Back following a solo path since 2007 he has clocked up four solo CD releases so far, plus a DVD/Double CD box set which hit the Amazon Top 50 Box Set charts in its first week of release. Now, fresh from an appearance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, he’s stopping off at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall as part of his latest tour.

Andy is joined by his band The Low Riders, another ‘who’s who’ of the best players of the rock scene, with Paul Beavis on drums (Thea Gilmore, Robbie Macintosh, Sunday All Over The World), Nick Pentelow on sax (Wizzard, Juice on the Loose, Diz and the Doormen) and long standing associate Dave Bronze on bass (Eric Calpton, Concert for George and countless others).

Don’t miss the latest chapter in Andy’s incredible career. Oh – and in case you didn’t think that it sounded quite varied enough, Andy is also an accomplished tennis player who has represented his home country Wales at veterans level… who knew?!
