Forster Charlton Tapes

Throughout the 1960s Forster Charlton, himself a piper and fiddle player of some note, made a large collection of reel-to-reel tape recordings of Northumbrian pipers, playing at competitions, gatherings and other events. This programme features selections from Forster Charlton himself, dueting with Colin Caisley, as well as Diana Blackett Ord, George Atkinson, Joe Hutton and Richard Flemming.
