With TV commissions performances, and festival appearances to his credit, Eryl brings variety to any performance, with his Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin and Vocal skills.
Andy has been a leading freelance guitarist for over 30 years. His love of Django Reinhardt’s music has led him to become one of the early leaders of the recent gypsy jazz revival.
Widely respected as both performer and teacher of this style. Andy has headlined the Samois festival as a member of John Jorgenson’s band in addition to recreating this unique music for film and TV.
After reaching the final of the Young Jazz Musician of the Year competitions in both ‘96 & ’98, Billy became an integral member of seminal English Jazz/Rock outfit Barbara Thompson’s Paraphernalia with Jon Hiseman on drums. Billy has headlined twice at Ronnie Scott’s with Paraphernalia and toured Europe extensively featuring on 5 albums.
Performing in the Gypsy Jazz or ‘Hot Club’ style, Billy has performed with international guitarists Gary Potter, John Etheridge, Lollo Meier, Andreas Oberg, Martyn Taylor and Howard Alden amongst others…
