Willy Taylor, Billy Atkinson, Joe Hutton and George Hepple - Wallsend Concert

Recorded at the Anson, Wallsend on the 23rd November 1979, by Phil Ranson, this collection of recordings is taken from a rare concert featuring four of the most respected Northumbrian musicians of that era. Performing we hear George Hepple - fiddle, Willy Taylor - fiddle, Billy Atkinson, mouth organ and Joe Hutton smallpipes. Whilst most of the recordings are of solo performances there are three recordings which feature all the musicians playing together, a duet from Billy Atkinson and Joe Hutton and two glorious combinations featuring Joe Hutton or Willy Taylor accompanied by George Hepple, who playing some elegant second part variations.
