Andrew plays many instruments including Guitar (Acoustic and Electric), Banjo, Mandolin, Ukulele, Keyboard, Electric Bass and Shruti Box
For the open-air summer tours with Folksy, using a cast of actor-musicians, Andrew adapted and arranged traditional folk songs and composed new instrumental sections and new instrumentation to Shakespearian songs to fill these Shakespeare productions with live music - you can see an example below which is an original arrangement of the closing song from Love's Labour's Lost.
He wrote original scores and lyrics for the Folksy Winter tours, arranged for three actor musicians, and co-wrote the original music and lyrics for Plothole Blackhole, a new musical (you can listen to recordings from the Industry Sharing at The Other Palace here). He created a mix of electronic, '80s-inspired and acoustic underscoring for RedBellyBlack's production of OK, Bye
For non-live projects Andrew has created original underscoring tracks for vloggers Jodie Micciche and Hannah Howell's online videos, Scratchworks Theatre's Making Magic social media video series, and original music for the Juniper Tree Un:Voiced Podcast.
