A shepherd all his working life, and the son of a traditional West Northumberland fiddler, Joe Hutton played mainly dance music from preference. He learnt the pipes from G.G. Armstrong, then acquired the magnificent ivory set of pipes made by T. Errington Thompson, won many competitions and played for local dances and concerts, frequently with Will Atkinson and Willy Taylor, amongst many others. He lived at Harbottle in Northumberland. A teacher of pipes, regarded by many as the greatest, with beautiful style.

In this selection, recorded at the Bay Folk Club, Cullercoats in 1979, we hear Joe Hutton playing a set of three tunes - Cameron Highlanders, Laird o' Drumblair and Blanchland Races.
