Andy White

A little bit of politics and a lot of wit from the perennially likeable Irish folk rock singer-songwriter.

Details

An intimate up close evening with the Australia based, Belfast Born singer songwriter.

A true 21st Century, perennial peripatetic troubadour, from Belfast, longtime resident of Melbourne, Andy White is one of Ireland's most accomplished and respected song-writers since his 1985 debut Stiff EP 'Religious Persuasion' and his 1986 first album, 'Rave On Andy White'.

He's the 'A' in 'supergroup' ALT alongside Liam O'Maonlai (Hothouse Flowers) and Tim Finn (Crowded House). He's recorded with Peter Gabriel and toured in so many different combinations, published poems and prose.

A longtime association with Womad as well as appearances at The Fleadh and Glastonbury means Andy's well used to large open air gigs, but he's equally at home in intimate spaces, where his beautiful songs, voice and musicianship shine and inspire.

Forever touring, forever changing, forever Andy...

'It's in the slender throwaway lines to be found in the work of Andy White, with their impressive lightness of touch, that [The New North] best embodies its declared faith in the virtues of 'the smaller thing'.' The Guardian.

'From rage to sage it ain't too late to discover one of our best kept secrets.' MOJO

'I love this man and his music. Rave on!' Janice Long, BBC Radio
