An Evening With Andy Kershaw

kershawStarting this Saturday 14 January in Belfast, Andy Kershaw will be traversing venues across the UK with his 'The Adventures of Andy Kershaw: An Evening with the Legendary Broadcaster and Foreign Correspondent' Tour. 

One of the UK’s most decorated broadcasters, working for Radio 4 and, for fifteen years as a Radio 1 DJ, where he shared an office with John Peel and legendary producer John Walters. It was Andy’s enthusiasms that made him the central figure in the popularization of World Music.

A born rebel and a maverick, he’s combined his passion for music with a lunatic curiosity and an instinct for frontline journalism, reporting for the BBC and the broadsheets from the world’s most extreme countries – Iraq, North Korea, Haiti, Angola and Rwanda during the genocide. His adventures are documented in his autobiography, 'No Off Switch', released in 2011. If you haven't yet read it then you can catch an exclusive extract courtesy of Songlines at www.songlines.co.uk/nooffswitch
