Andy Stewart (30 December 1933 - 11 October 1993) was a Scottish singer and entertainer. The use of tartan patriotism and stereotypical Scottish humour goes back to Sir Harry Lauder and music hall songs. In the 1960s this strand was continued by entertainer Andy Stewart. He was born in Glasgow in 1933, the son of a teacher.
He moved to Arbroath as a child and then trained as an actor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. He had several hit singles - "Come in-Come in", "Donald where's yer troosers?", "A Scottish Soldier" (36 weeks in the chart in 1961), "Campbeltown Loch", "The Muckin' O' Geordie's Byre", "Tunes of Glory", and "Dr. Finlay". He is also remembered for being the compere of "The White Heather Club".
This was a BBC television programme that existed as an annual New Year's Eve party (1957 - 1968) and also as a weekly early evening series (1960 - 1968). "Donald Where's Yer Troosers?" was a hit in 1961 and again in 1989. Andy does an Elvis impersonation half way through the song. On the strength of this comedy hit, Andy toured Australia and appeared on the Ed Sullivan show in 1968, doing impersonations of Dean Martin. ...show less
