Andy Eastwood - consummate musician!
Here's another lovely quickie for you... Andy Eastwood - well-known as a highly skilled performer of George Formby songs, perhaps not quite so well-known as all-round musician and entertainer that he is. He has great stage presence and as you see from the above video clips, he plays wooden uke, violin and piano with consummate skill. The video says it all, doesn't it!
He's featured with a full-length article in the very classy publication "UKE Magazine (issue 6) (June 2016 here in the UK.
We're delighted to have seen Andy play live several times - UFGB (Ukulele Festival of Great Britain) in 2013, at the George Formby conventions in Blackpool, when he can get there; supporting comedian Ken Dodd and in the revue "We'll Meet Again". What an entertainer!
If you've never had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Andy live, I recommend you catch up with him in July...
