From under the gaze of the East Sussex Wilmington Giant, Milton Hide (Jim and Josie Tipler) tell stories through original song. The duo blend Jim’s guitar and Josie’s pure vocal delivery with percussion and clarinet.
They will introduce you to memorable characters and intriguing tales inspired by their travels and the people they have met along the way. At times heartbreaking, at times wry, a Milton Hide performance always engages and charms an audience, leaving them wanting more.
Their songs are story based and they are touring the UK to gather inspiration in their Audience Book for new songs – in Sussex they are looking to create New Sussex Ballads.
Local legends, characters, landscape features – anything that can be immortalised as a story in song is welcome as a suggestion.
Once the songs are written, the duo intend to do a return tour and hope to collaborate with local artists and writers to create new works based on the stories and songs.
