James Tait

James Tait is the son of a farmer born at Barrowburn in the beautiful Coquet Valley within the Cheviot Hills.


Barrowburn itself is famed for the great tune The Barrowburn Reel written by Addie Harper of Wick when he visited these scenic surroundings on a band trip here in 1973, so it is no surprise that James’ childhood in such a musically inspiring place has led him to becoming a very fine musician indeed.


As well as being a talented musician, James also writes and performs poetry, written in the dialect of the Coquet valley.
