Andy Roberts In Concert

Early years busking in Europe broadened his palette to include blues, rock, ragtime and chanson. You can still find him street performing occasionally, and in pubs, clubs and festivals.

This concert, performed in the intimate setting of Ventnor Arts Club, will focus on the most original tunes from the 2020 album ‘Philosophical’ alongside favourites from the substantial back catalogue, “The Rowan Tree” and one or two new ones. Expect intricate fingerstyle guitar work with soaring vocals and anthemic refrains. Not to be repeated this year, so don’t miss it!
