About

About Us

Established in 2009, The Music Agency was originally set up by Andy Farquharson to help people find the right musical talent for their events in the South Wales area. Having studied Music at Cardiff University, and with his experience as a performing musician, he used his contacts and connections to help add that 'wow' factor to both large and small events.

However it was whilst working on the management team of BBC National Orchestra of Wales as Operations & Logistics Manager that Andy realised how many Arts organisations actually need an extra hand from time to time.

So the business evolved in to the one it is today; here to help at whatever level you need, whenever you need it. Andy's wide-ranging experience can assist in many ways from project-based work and consultancy to ad-hoc administrative support.

Interested in taking your music on the road? With international experience in touring - initially developed taking youth groups abroad for Club Europe Concert Tours, before progressing to work for The Walt Disney Company and the BBC - Andy can advise on all aspects and has many of his own systems in place to help make it all happen.
