Andy Leon started in folk music singing unaccompanied songs at the Bridge Hotel in Newcastle, where he met Ewan McColl one of his early musical influences, which include Bob Dylan, Doc Watson & Rog Fickensher. He moved on to playing in open sessions in pubs and Scottish 3 day ceilidhs. At this time he did a fair bit of busking, which he found a useful way to pracice songs. He considers it a privilege to be able to sit in a pub with a group of friends making music and singing songs.
"There's no music that ain't played by folks"
