I’m sure there are many of you who will both know of and have enjoyed the the voice of Scottish folk singer and songwriter Andy M Stewart who was the frontman for Silly Wizard. His sister, Angie Stewart Hollin, has launched an appeal to help improve Andy’s quality of life following a deterioration in his health over the last four years to the extent that he has gradually lost his business and livelihood.
Through a series of medical misadventures, and in September 2012 a failed spinal surgery, he has lost all mobility and was paralysed from the chest down with many other medical complications. Last September he had emergency surgery which he was not expected to survive, but he’s a fighter. If you are one of those people who know and care for him or love his music, I am appealing to you. The fact is that Andy needs your help.He is now still recovering in hospital where he will remain for quite some time to come.
Also please help spread the word as there are many folk music lovers out there today who this man has brought joy to over the years.
