A Christmas message from The Keeping Boys 2017

Fantastic Reviews on "Napulitano" coming in...

 

"Andrew Morris’ performance on this album, in my opinion, places him comfortably among some of the wonderful English tenors of recent time... Andrew Keeping, as ever, is a sensitive and generous accompanist. His work as producer and sound engineer on this album, is of the highest standard, and confirm him as a true Artisan in the field of music production and post- production... I have to say, that after much deliberation, my copy of “Napilutano” by the wonderful tenor Andrew Morris, accompanied by the exquisite guitar-playing of Andrew Keeping, now sits side by side, next to the master himself - Robert Murolo!”

""Thanks to the gorgeous and heartfelt performances by Andrews Morris & Keeping, I think we can safely say that Romance is not dead!"

Had the great joy of meeting up with Bridget Mermikides at the launch of her new book at the London Guitar Studios. It was a star studded cast of some dear friends, and low and behold we had this photographic opportunity of my royal Academy of Music Class of 1987 with dear friends Gary ryan and Brian O'Doherty!

Andrew has completed all the arrangements and guitar overdubs to his arrangements of some of the greatest Neapolitan Songs for the forthcoming album with Tenor, Andrew Morris. Both are delighted with the results, and hope you will be too. Andrew is mastering the album in the next week or two, and will be released by the summer!

Andrew was honoured to be asked to become Professor/Lecturer of Guitar at the London College of Music/ University of West London. Interestingly the same role his mentor Oliver Hunt used to occupy. He looks forward to working with the students.

Andrew had the great privilge of meeting one of his idols, the legendary Albert Lee. One of the worlds greatest living guitarists and unsung (and most beloved) heroes of country-rock. 

Twelfth Night

On this day, we paid tribute to Shakespeare. 400 years since have passed, and through the music of the era we remembered him. So all doffed their caps, and raised a glass, and brought babies forth, to hear sweet music from bygone days played on the gentle lute and guitar.

In October, Andrew performed a delightful concert at St. Mary's Church, Sutton Valence, joined by the fantastic Mum's Choir "Mumma Mia.This was attended by over 200 people, and was a true community event. Andrew is delighted to announce that over £2000 for the church amenities was raised by the concert.

In August, Andrew was delighted to record former student Will Scott's debut Album. Will is a second year student at the Royal College of Music, studying under Gary Ryan. He is rapidly becoming one of the finest young talents of the guitar world. This recording just helped reinforce this position!

Andrew has been recording for KeepingMusic with Alexandra Leckie. This excellent versatile singer is a true professional, recording consistently in one or two takes. The results have been very exciting indeed.
