Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders will be taking centre stage at the Corn Exchange, Newbury in September.
Fairweather Low is one of the world’s most respected musicians, who, on a side note, also happens to be a veteran international tennis player. Born in 1948 in Cardiff, he rose to prominence in the 60s as the front man for chart topping teen idol band Amen Corner.
His vocals and his distinctive voice were the perfect lead for the group and the 1960s saw them clock up hit after pop hit; songs such as Bend Me Shape Me, Hello Suzy and (If Paradise is) Half As Nice.
Since the early days he has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, Elton John, the Bee Gees, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow and hundreds more.
The current band is also a who’s who of the best players on the rock scene, joining Andy on drums is Paul Beavis, on keyboards is Chris Stainton and on bass is long standing associate Dave Bronze.
Together the group play sweet soulful music that is technically outstanding and original.
This special show features The Low Riders Special Soul Review, an extended brass section and Hammond organ performing throughout.
The performance takes place on September 6 at 7.45pm and will run for just over two hours, including an interval. Full price tickets are £21.
