The people’s violinist and Phantom performer comes back to town

A concert will be given by the popular and enigmatic Bedford born musician Andrew Hubbard later this month.

Andrew works closely with stars such as Carey Mulligan, Chris Marshall, Ronni Ancona, Henry Goodman and many more, keeping ‘their singing in order’ from the keyboard and violin.

While he still performs part-time on The Phantom of the Opera in London’s West-End, Andrew took a sabbatical from full-time theatre to travel the country performing as an independent artist and selling his CDs.

He says this gives him freedom of expression, and that he is a highly gregarious person and loves meeting people.

His down to earth approachable personality has earned him the title ‘The People’s Violinist’.

Andrew says ‘variety is the spice of life’ and performs one day for a Christmas market, and the next at a concert in Harrods!

He is particularly amazed at how many of his albums have sold in Bedford.

He said: “I never get such a brilliant response anywhere else in the UK”, and he is extremely grateful to the people of Bedford, his hometown, for their support.

Many of his listeners have suggested that he should put on a concert tour and so he will be returning to his roots when he appears at St Cuthbert’s Church Hall, Bedford on Saturday, February 28 at 7.30pm. He is learning new music in response to fans’ requests. Tickets for this special evening are selling quickly so early booking is advised, from Bedford Central Box Office on (01234) 718112 or online at
