Andrew Leaton

a.k.a.Shiny Head, a.k.a. Scottish Andy
Musical Armour: Fiddle.

One of the first international artistes to join the crawl troupe, Andy’s Scottish heritage adds a pan-Celtic flavour to crawl proceedings.

Constantly on the search for new and vibrant tunes, Andy finds himself heavily influenced by the lively Sligo-Leitrim style of fiddling while bringing his own uniquely empassioned Scottish flourishes to the melodies. Andy has worked closely on musical projects with both Alan Doherty (see 6.) and talented Dublin rhythmist Tony Byrne. Andy’s other great passions include trees, anything to do with numbers, Oprah and personal hygiene (though not necessarily in that order).
