Andrew currently leads the band with a 4 row Continental B System accordion and is a talented multi-instrumentalist, having studied music from the age of seven.

Andrew has been involved with folk music for many years and originally founded the well known local band, Rufus Return. His playing draws upon a wealth of experience in other musical genres as his musical career has included playing for Le Cage aux Folles at the London Palladium, and travelling Europe with a professional theatre company.

You will see Andrew's wife Lisa with us on occasion, she is a caller and often comes along to put the crowd through their paces.

They moved to Qatar in the middle East for 3 yrs and on returning in 2006 Andrew joined the BVB as keyboard player to replace Matt Parker who moved to New Zealand to become an airline pilot

Since Dave Ingledew left the band, Andrew has brought his accordion talents to the fore and can be heard driving the melody alongside Joyce.
