Andy Stewart (1933 - 1994) was a Scottish singer and entertainer.
The use of tartan patriotism and stereotype Scottish humour goes back to Sir Harry Lauder and music hall songs. In the 1960s this strand continued in the entertainer Andy Stewart. He was born in Glasgow in 1933, the son of a teacher. 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", "Muckin' O' Geordies Byre", "Tunes of Glory", and "Dr. Findlay". He is also remembered for being the compere of "The White Heather Club ". This was a BBC television program 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 troured Australia and appeared on the Ed Sullivan show in 1968, doing impersonations of Dean Martin.
Andy died in Arbroath in 1994.
