Unfortunately the Nedwood Music Festival that Andrew was due to play has been cancelled.
The organisers sent us this message…
It is with great sadness and total devastation that we have to inform you that the unfortunate decision has been taken to cancel Nedwood Music Festival 2016.
On the afternoon on Thursday (28 July) we were informed that due to unforeseen circumstances the provider of our stage crews, lighting and sound techs, stage and production Managers and most importantly sound monitoring were unable to provide their services. Although Nedwood Music Festival has a lot of their own infrastructure and additional services could have been resourced, we are sad to say that Sound Monitoring provision to which certain qualifications are required was not one of them. Sound Monitoring is very much a crucial part of our Event Licence from Charnwood Council with very strict criteria to meet and with less than 14 days to go with no guarantees that any new Sound Monitoring provision would have been accepted it would be exceptional unfair and unprofessional to carry on knowing that there would be an exceptionally high chance that the Festival would have to be cancelled at the very last minute.
If you were planning to come, sorry we won’t see you there – do make sure you check out the gigs page to see other dates you can come to.
Unfortunately the Summer Day’s festival that Andrew was due to play at in July has been cancelled.
The organisers sent us this message…
Summer Days, the new boutique music and food festival that launched this year, has been cancelled.
This year’s event was scheduled to take place at Clitheroe Castle between 6 and 9 July with headliners Simply Red, Jools Holland and Echo & The Bunnymen.
A spokesman for Summer Days said: “After serious consideration we are heartbroken to announce that Summer Days festival 2016 will not take place. We have looked at every angle possible to keep the event live but due to a combination of factors including rising cost and newly arisen logistical obstacles we have no choice but to call Summer Days off.
“All ticket holders will of course receive a face value refund and should contact their ticket vendors directly.
“Support for Summer Days has been both incredible and humbling and makes this decision all the harder. You have our heartfelt apologies. Thank you again for all your support.”
Apologies to those are you planning to attend – do make sure you check out the gigs page to see other dates you can come to.
Ok – so we know we’ve only just got back from touring (thanks for all the lovely comments by the way, it was a real pleasure as always) but…as we don’t like to hang around too long (because we love it so much) we are announcing our new tour already – ENCORE.
Check out the Gigs tab for the when, where and how to book – we’ll be adding more dates as well as some gigs in Europe soon, so do keep an eye out for those too!
We can’t wait to see you there!
We’re thrilled to announce a new tour for Andrew during 2015…
He’ll be heading out on a double headline tour with long-time friends The Christians.
Andrew is very excited about this tour along with The Christians, who through their soul, gospel and heartfelt acoustic pop are promising to make this an exciting series of shows.
Find some space in your diaries for September or October to book your tickets – we can’t wait to see you there.
Andrew will be performing live at World Hunger Day 2013 – the event is going unplugged for the first time in a series of up close and personal live music sessions dedicated to Jazz, Soul, RnB and Gospel music in the heart of London’s Soho
Other performers include Joe McElderry, Anthony Strong, Barb Jungr, Jumoké Fashola, London Community Gospel Choir, Mari Wilson, Omar, Randolph Matthews and Tammy Weis.
Talking about the concert Andrew said:
“With Jazz in the very heart and soul of my musical craft, I can’t think of a better time and place to showcase the journey of my 25 year career and what better cause than to step up myself for the end of Hunger and Poverty. I am sure all my fellow artists for this special concert season are as happy as I am to donate our collective talents in order that others have the opportunity to build a brighter future for themselves. This effort is all about partnership and success can be achieved and in our lifetime. As I’ve sung so many times, ‘Get ready…get ready for the dawning…”
After The Hunger Project UK’s successes of two sell-out concerts at the Apollo Victoria and the Royal Albert Hall in 2011 and 2012 respectively, this year’s World Hunger Day events move to an equally iconic venue – PizzaExpress Jazz Club in Soho, which was redesigned in April and now features artwork celebrating its jazz roots. Since 1969, PizzaExpress Jazz Club has welcomed on its stage some of the world’s greatest musicians including Ella Fitzgerald and Amy Winehouse.
This year, World Hunger Day 2013 falls on 28th May 2013 and will be celebrated throughout the extended May Bank Holiday weekend with six exciting shows (26th and 28th May 2013 inclusive). The entire weekend will be hosted by Award-winning Broadcaster, Journalist, Singer and Actress, Jumoké Fashola.
The gig that was scheduled to happen in September and then moved to 7th December in Leigh is cancelled due to issues with the venue.
If you have purchased tickets please approach the point of purchase for a refund.
Apologies for this, it’s out of our direct control – we’ll look for another venue in the area for a tour date in future.
Andrew will be playing a private show for listeners of Superfly FM in Vienna on 18th October.

Roachford will be performing with his band at an open-air show in Göttingen as part of their Summer of Culture.
Now we’ve had a lot of suggestions we’ve added a poll with some of the ones most commonly requested.
It’s always good to kick off the year making plans and so that’s exactly what we’re going to help Andrew’s management do…
Plans are afoot for a new UK tour before too long, but we’ve noticed that every time there’s a tour there are calls to add extra towns or cities.
So this article is your opportunity to add comments with where you think the next UK tour should head – over to you….
