An inspiring singer, songwriter and string player from Scotland, Andy Webster has been described as one of his “generation’s leading instrumentalists” (Rob Adams, The Scotsman).

Webster's compositions have been selected for compilation albums across Europe and have seen much television and radio play worldwide.

His self-penned numbers and instrumentals are a new and refreshing taste in the folk scene where his sound will often delve into blues, and even pop and rock influences, while maintaining his Scottish roots as its background.

The powerful and varied guitar and bouzouki playing of Andy Webster has backed many leading acts including Dougie MacLean, Calasaig, award-winning harpist Phamie Gow, and the Finlay McDonald Band. He was a lead member of the multi-award winning, 7 piece Scottish band, Brolum, for 7 years until his move to Canada.

For many years, Webster’s music has led him to stages in France, Italy, Belgium, Estonia, the Netherlands, Denmark, Turkey, Russia, England, Wales, the USA and Canada. Highlights include multiple performances at Celtic Connections, Glasgow; the Festival Interceltique de Lorient,, Brittany; and recording at the famed Sun Studios, Memphis, Tennessee.

Andy at present plays with singer songwriter Julie Leahy as well as the Celtic music and dance ensemble, Hawp, which includes award winning choreogrpaher, Niamh Webster and renowned Canadian fiddler, Anne Lederman.
