His late wife, Aileen Way, who died in 2009, was a horn player in the Scottish National Orchestra.



  • Corno di Caccia says:

    I knew Andy well and I loved the times he would give often give me a lift to rehearsals and concerts. He was a wonderful, warm-hearted, man and a terrific player. He will be much missed by all who knew him. RIP Andy and thank you for all your help and support.

  • Paul Kampen says:

    I remember him well from when we played together in the stage band for ‘Don Giovanni’ at the Edinburgh Festivals of, I think, 1972 and 73. RIP
