The High Level Ranters
Last updated: 21.06.17
p_hlr.jpgAccording to the Internet sources given below, The High Level Ranters were founded in 1964 as a Northumbrian traditional musical group one of the first involved in the revival of the Northumbrian smallpipes. From 1969 to 1979 the group comprised Alistair Anderson, Tommy Gilfellon, Johnny Handle and Colin Ross. After 1980 they reduced to Jim Hall, Johnny Handle and Colin Ross.
Their name combines the location of the Bridge Folk Club at the North end of the High Level Bridge in Newcastle and the Cheviot Ranters, a famous Northumberland dance band operating in the Alnwick area from about 1953 to 1996.
Forster Charlton, John Doonan, Pete Wood and Louis Killen have also performed and recorded with them.
Not only have they introduced many of today's pipers to the Northumbrian smallpipes but also been instrumental in reviving traditional music from the North-East of England to national and international audiences.
