Scottish guitar virtuoso and singer/songwriter Andy Gunn is taking his soulful bluesy set on tour, to support new album 'Too Many Guitars To Give Up Now’.
Andy Gunn has earned a reputation as one of Scotland’s leading blues musicians. Across 6 critically acclaimed, self-produced albums, he has poured his soul into crafting music which reflects on the personal tragedies he has endured, whilst celebrating his recovery and salvation. It says everything about the character of Gunn, as he has emerged triumphantly and matured into one of the most original and inspirational UK bluesmen of his generation (Dave Scott).
Andy goes from strength to strength with latest album, “Too Many Guitars To Give Up Now”, picked up by BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio 2, The Telegraph, and Uncut Magazine, as well as securing a run of shows at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Renowned for his electrifying and uplifting shows, he has shared the stage with some of the greats, such as Albert Collins and Geno Washington, as well as supporting Buddy Guy at The Queens Hall in Edinburgh.
After releasing new album "'Too Many Guitars To Give Up Now" in Feb 2018, Andy secured an endorsement deal with Duesenberg Guitars (Germany) and St. Blues Guitars (Memphis).

Inspired by a conversation about owning an embarrassing number of guitars, when asked: “how many do you have?” All Andy could say was “put it this way, I’ve got too many guitars to give up now!” and so this album was born. The Album was recorded live in Edinburgh on an analogue system to retain that warm classic blues sound.
