Andy Scott was the subject of a feature article in the regional magazine Cheshire Life this month.
The feature, entitled Andy Scott’s music is filling Sandbach...and reaching farther afield, saw Andy singing the praises of Foden’s Band, the award winning local band with which he is Composer in Residence. The piece also gives some background to the New Music Biennial commission that he is currently writing for Foden’s, soprano / narrator Anna-Clare Monk and harpist Lauren Scott, outlining plans for the new work and the process of its creation. The commission, A Child Like You, will be premiered at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester on 2 May.
Interviewed by Robert Beale, Andy said “What I’ve learnt, over the past six years, is that the work of a band such as Foden’s is world-class in terms of technique, musicality and commitment. It has an amazing sound … so warm and with a huge dynamic range. And there are probably people in Cheshire who might not know too much about the world of bands but could be interested in this showcase for the county … and could offer real support to a little gem in their midst.”
