Roddy is one of the foremost fiddlers of Northumberland. A superb selection of music, including some of his own jaunty compositions.

Reels, jigs, marches, waltzes, slow airs and hornpipes from around the north of Britain, with backing from equally talented friends.

Friends Forever' are the wonderful people of Shetland and is a slow air which was written and performed for the Shetland Accordion Fiddle Festival in 2003. Whilst Northumbrian and Shetland music have their own very distinctive styles, there is a huge similarity.

Roddy Matthews (fiddle), Jim Nichol (piano, keyboard, bass), Gary Forrest (accordion), Scott Nichol (accordion), Iain 'Stretch' MacFadyen (drums, percussion), Kathryn Tickell (northumbrian pipes, fiddle), Catriona MacKay (harp).
