Merry Christmas Listeners!!!
This week we have a Christmas Special featuring Andrew Cottee and his original score to accompany 'The Night Before Christmas.'
As one of the leading composer/arrangers of his generation, Andrew has worked for Sir Paul McCartney, Seth MacFarlane, Disney, 20th Century Fox and Quincy Jones.
His work can also be heard on major film and television releases such as 'Sing', 'Beyond The Sea' and 'The Orville' the latter recieving best original score for television from the International Film Music Critics Award (IFMCA).
Recently, he and his business partner Tom Croxon have established 'Dream Town Music,' providing music and musiciansfor film, television, theatre, recording artists, gaming, advertising, live concerts and events.
I've had the privilege of playing for Andrew and Tom's Christmas show over the last couple of years with the RTE Symphony Orchestra in Dublin and Wexford, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Glasgow, Ayr and Aberdeen and the Dream Town Orchestra's London debut at the Barbican.
