Since starting Newcastle’s first folk club at Barras Bridge in 1958 and later at The Bridge Hotel, Johnny established himself as international ambassador of Geordie music and culture. 

With his group The High Level Ranters he has travelled the world spreading Geordie humour and song. 

During research for radio and TV, Johnny’s quest for the holy grail of Geordieland has taken many turns. His passionate desire to find the mystic town of Plodgeborough was his main motivation. After rambles over fell and shore, back lanes and pit heaps, he finally found the sacred place in the Fairly Truthful manuscripts of Gary Hogg.  

Deciphered from the original and almost unintelligible documents, here, for the wider appreciation of the British public is Johnny’s first contribution to the archive.
