Your Stories In Song

During 2024 Milton Hide  will be organising events, on behalf of Summer Trifle Group, across the Wealden area for people to share their stories, be they personal recollections, tales of local people, family history or legends associated with places. In true folk tradition, Milton Hide will be writing and performing songs inspired by the stories gathered and will be inviting audiences to participate. The aim is to encourage social engagement across the generations, especially for those feeling isolated and to help ensure your stories don’t disappear into the momentary ether of ‘social media’.
‘Your Stories In Song’ is funded by the National Lottery.

Your Stories In Song events coming up:

7 FEB FRONTIER BAR, EASTBOURNE  – public event co-ordinated by Compass Community Arts. 7pm
15 FEB CROWBOROUGH U3A  private event for U3A members – contact for details
Check back here for more dates as they are added.

A songwriting project by Milton Hide

Milton Hide are singer-songwriters Jim and Josie Tipler.

Their songs are story based and they have been touring the UK with their Audience Book to gather new song inspirations as part of their Jay’s Nest Project. They are now also working on “Your Stories In Song” with the Summer Trifle group, gathering stories in Wealden – a project funded by the National Lottery. 

Local legends, characters, landscape features – any story you have to share and that might 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. The hope is that local artists and writers will also collaborate to create new works based on the stories and songs.
