Wait there’s more! You can now pre-order copies of FLANG DANG, Andy’s first solo album since 2006!

After an interval of sixteen years, here he is again at his sweet and soulful musical best with the kind of record that will surely delight his fans. Every song on the album was written by Andy and oozes with the blues and gospel style that he has made his own. He recorded it all at Kingsley Ward’s Rockfield studio in Wales, with drummer Paul Beavis providing the healthiest of heartbeats for this new body of Andy’s work. The whole album has the patina of maturity that you would expect from someone with such a huge wealth of experience as a musician and a gentleman.

Tour Cancellation *UPDATE*

Further to our announcement in early October, it is with great regret and our sincere apologies that we now have to announce all planned dates for AFL & The Low Riders up to September 2023 will have to be cancelled as of today.

Andy’s situation has not changed and in order to give everyone time to react and rearrange we can no longer leave this decision.
There will not be any further announcements until, in due course, we are in a position to announce a rescheduling of all shows we will miss.

Guitarist Review

Flang Dang. A sparkling solo album from esteemed sideman. It’s been a long wait since Andy Fairweather Low’s last solo album, Sweet Soulful Music, was released in 2006, but Flang Dang is a notable return to form…

Tour Cancellation

It is with deep regret we announce that, with immediate effect, the remaining dates on the Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders tour have been cancelled.

Andy now must be home to give full-time 24 / 7 care to his wife who is battling a terminal illness.

There will not be any further announcements until, in due course, plans for 2023 become clear.
