English musician, zither-player and multi-instrumentalist, heavily influenced by traditional Finnish, Scots Gaelic and North Iberian musics.

He has several productive and successful live-performing alliances, all ongoing, including with long-time collaborator Ian Blake, with Armenian duduk player Tigran Aleksanyan, and with Canada-based Chinese pipa and gu-cheng virtuoso Liu Fang and Vietnamese dan bau master Pham Duc Thanh.

As a world music journalist Andrew Cronshaw writes features and reviews for magazines, particularly for [l=Folk Roots] but also including The Strad, Unknown Public, Sing Out (USA), and others.

Apart from his own albums, he has produced, and in most cases engineered, albums by June Tabor, Silly Sisters, Bill Caddick, Zumzeaux, Brendan Power, Salamakannel, Nikolai Blad and others, and produced the mixes of Flook's Flatfish and of Hannu Saha's Mahla.

Recent session work includes playing on albums by Scott Walker, Suede, Natacha Atlas, Pascal Gaigne, B.J.Cole and Ute Lemper, on film soundtracks including Trevor Jones' for GI Jane, and others with Magnus Fiennes. The song Zitherbell, which he co-wrote and performs with Natacha Atlas on her album 'Foretold in the Language of Dreams', appears in Jonathan Demme's film 'The Truth About Charlie'.
