Andy Baker

Having an interest in most kinds of music, over the years Andy has played in rock bands, brass bands and amateur orchestras. Andy’s main instruments are violin and guitar, but also dabbles with piano, tenor horn and the mandolin. Andy has also tried his hand at conducting and arranging music.

His real interest lies in getting people involved! Anyone that can play an instrument and have a basic ability to read music (or indeed play by ear!) to get out and play socially and that is exactly what Andy’s workshop will be about for the Saughall Hoedown.

The tunes will be folk based and depending on the instruments that turn up, ad hoc arrangements will be on the cards! The emphasis is on getting anyone that turns up to join in, creating a good sound and having some fun along the way.
