“The finest British broadcaster bar none, a real broadcast journalist, a real achiever, a real someone, an amazing man.” – Stephen Fry
Andy Kershaw is a pioneer and evangelist, bringing music from around the globe to UK audiences with more than 3 decades of programmes on BBC radio’s 1 & 3.
His obsession with finding new music has resulted in a 7.5 ton record collection, a collection garnered from having visited 97 Countries in his pursuit of new and exciting sounds. Andy Kershaw wrote the book on World Music.
He has won more Sony Music Awards than any other broadcaster, was with Radio 1 for 15 years sharing a cramped office with the John Peel, became the presenter of Old Grey Whistle Test by accident, frequently moonlighting as a foreign correspondent and war reporter.
Andy’s DJ talents are not restricted just to radio. He brings all his enthusiasm to live DJ gigs: Andy Kershaw’s African, Caribbean, & Latin Dance Night, a one man war on musical mediocrity, is a straight through 2 hour explosion of irresistible tropical dance music.
Even defiant non dancers will submit.
We’re now booking into 2024 for headline nights across the UK, private parties, and festivals.
