Programme Three


Will Atkinson and Friends

Mouth Organ player, Will Atkinson played with great warmth in a style that was both captivating and distinctive. With the instrument barely touching his lips and relying on great use of tongue work, Atkinson's style reflected his musical beginnings as a button accordion player. In this programme we hear Will playing solo and in various combinations with other musicians. Amongst those heard are Willy Taylor, George Hepple, John Dagg and Joe Hutton. Tunes heard include many of wills favorites such as the J.B. Milne and the New High Level Hornpipe, as well as less well known pieces such as President Garfield's Hornpipe and the unnamed waltz which comes just after the Boys of Bluehill. Listen and enjoy.
