Andy Fraser

Keyboards and Vocals

Andy has played with more bands than we have web space to list, so here is a short resume:

Andy formed his first band called the Peruvian Turd Hurlers in 1964. This was mainly a rock 'n' roll band.

He did much session work in late 60's to early 70's including many BBC Nightride Recordings.

He formed the Andy Fraser Quartet in '74 and in the next 4 years backed and played with names such as Bing Crosby, Humphrey Littleton, Harry Becket, Paul Melba, Joan Turner and Bert Weedon to mention a few. Then he retired for 20 years.

In 2001 he reformed The Andy Fraser Quartet with: Alan Slater, Arthur Norman, Pete Gregory, David Astell and Helen Burnett, plus many floating musicians who happened to turn up. Also around this time he was the Legless member of Wide-Eyed & Legless, David Astell being invariably wide-eyed, Helen Burnett the superb singer.

Andy is the founder of The Willingham Jazz & Blues Club (see gig guide) and as such he is largely responsible for the formation of Blues Consortium. It was in December 2001 that he asked Dr.A to form a band for a "one off" gig at his club. The rest is history.

Andy was guest vocalist at our Lee Groome Charity Gig at the Blue Bell, Werrington Village in September. By the way The Blue Bell is about to become a Blues 'n' Jazz Club called Blues and Jazz by The Green. Watch our Links page for future details.
