New online archive material Joseph Hornsby Fiddler

I, along with Masters student at Newcastle University have been working on an online digital archive of one man’s music–the Joseph Hornsby Archive.

Joseph is a great local fiddler from Northumberland who has been playing fiddle for over 60 years, with a long semi-professional career in dance bands.

There’s a lot of video interview material and other images etc. available on the Omega site now–please feel free to use it under CC-BY licence for research and teaching. It’s a fascinating insight into one person’s individual musical life, and how this is embedded in a very local network of relationships.

The Joseph Hornsby Archive.

all the best,

Simon McKerrell.
