Live recordings of Northumberland's finest traditional musicians playing fiddle, smallpipes and mouth organ.

Joe Hutton, Will Atkinson and Willie Taylor all worked as shepherds in Northumberland, and were related.

They played together during the late 1980s and early 1990s, they had a huge following outside their native homeland and travelled all over England playing at concerts, clubs and festivals.

They were led initially by concertina player Alistair Anderson.

They played in a style which was firmly rooted in the traditions of the North East Of England.

Joe Hutton (smallpipes), Will Atkinson (mouth organ) and Willie Taylor (fiddle)
