Andy Cutting

Three-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award ‘Best Musician’ winner and a soulful and technically outstanding melodeon practitioner with an ear for a fine tune - Andy Cutting is a rarity.

A warm and emotive performer, he modestly engages his audiences with his self-deprecating wit and staggering musicianship and there are few melodeon players who put so much feeling into their playing. Andy has been a musical force since he came swiftly to prominence with the innovative Blowzabella.

As well as a strong grounding in the English tradition, Andy's influences extend way beyond these isles, particularly to the music of Central France and to the storming Quebecois tradition. Andy's commitment to, and sense of pride in traditional music, as well as his sensitivity and understanding of the form, has made him one of the folk scene's most wanted, playing with Kate Rusby, John McCusker and Under One Sky to name but a few.

Andy is the consummate accompanist, harmonically, rhythmically and melodically and an exquisite soloist. There is no one I'd rather work with.
