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. They are now 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.

Once the songs are written, the duo intend to do a return tour. The hope is that artists, musicians and writers will also create new works based on the stories stored in the archive below.
