Two unsolicited emails received today -
Just wanted to say what a great night that was, and thank you.
First time I've seen him live. As Andy sang You Rambling Boys of Pleasure I really felt he had cast a spell on me.
You only get that with up close, acoustic sets, and its very special.
He can really tug on the heartstrings, his voice is wonderful for that
but he also makes you laugh!

and
Thank you so much for putting Andy on last night. A true legend and gentleman. Fantastic show.


Both from newcomers to the Royal Oak which is also a bonus for us.

Saw Andy at The Orange Tree in Baldock on Wednesday.

He was great, as always, but seemed maybe just a tad distracted - perhaps by the relentless coughing from some quarters...

In light of Barney McKenna's recent passing I was delighted that Andy fitted in "O'Donaghue's", but the wife was disappointed that he abandoned her favourite, "The Highwayman", after a couple of false starts.

Andy remains one of the best gigs on the circuit.

Andy was superb at Nettlebed FC last Monday . It was the first time I had seen him live , and I was amazed at his musical knowledge and dexterity , his ability to play harmonica the "wrong way" round , and his touching humility about false starts and forgotten words ; it just made the audience respect him all the more , I felt .And , I won the raffle ; a free ticket for Brass Monkey at the same venue tomorrow night !
