Andrew Reid

Andrew joined H&H in 2017, serving as Managing Director for five years before stepping down in August 2022 to return to practical musical-making.  He continues to support H&H as a director.

Andrew’s time as MD included managing the company through the financial and practical challenges of the global pandemic, changes in key personnel, and the building of an extension to our workshop.  He worked alongside Andrew Scott in developing the firm’s musical style, as evidenced in several recent and forthcoming instruments.  His interest in the firm dates back to 1989, when he held notes for our tuner in the Midlands after leaving school.

Prior to 2017, Andrew served as Director of the Royal School of Church Music, Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral, Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey and Assistant Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral.  He graduated from Cambridge with a music degree and MPhil in Musicology, studying the organ with David Sanger and Peter Hurford. He is currently Director of Music at Little St Mary’s Church, Cambridge.
