I am delighted to announce that the foremost authority on James Hill, Tyneside’s fiddling hero, has given me permission to stock his wonderful book and accompanying CD. So, Graham Dixon’s The Lads Like Beer is now for sale in the shop!

Many of the tunes performed in Jimmy’s Fiddle can be found in this book, along with some favourites recorded on The Gift, Root2 and Bottle Bank Band. The CD which accompanies the book showcases performances from a wide range of fantastic musicians.
