Andy’s one-man show, The Adventures of Andy Kershaw, has become a hugely successful highlight of many literary festivals - including a sold-out appearance at Hay on Wye - and a popular draw at theatres and arts centres around the UK.
Fascinating and often hilarious, the two hour audio-visual presentation treats the audience to recollections from a life spent on the front lines of rock’n’roll, and on the front lines of some of the world’s most extreme and dangerous countries.
A passionate music enthusiast, Andy is a man with an obsessive curiosity about the world. Over a 25 year career, he has worked for the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen, shared an office with John Peel and has amassed a record collection that weighs more than seven tons.
A fearless adventurer, he has visited 97 countries and, as a rock & roll war correspondent ‐ for Radio 4 and the broadsheets ‐ he has reported from some of the world’s most perilous places including Iraq, Sierra Leone, North Korea, Angola and Haiti. Andy was one of very few journalists to be an eyewitness to the Rwanda genocide. He has won more Sony Radio awards than any other broadcaster.
