Was rooting around the other day actually looking for a specific general music book by Herbet Whone - yep i was in my book worm mode! (many will know Herbet as Billy's music teacher from way back...) - when rooting around - it turns out there was an exhibition of his work in Harrogate back in 2006 (shame to have missed) - (was also a painter as well as author of many books).
Anyway - the interesting thing is - another link appeared Adam Whone incorporating Withers
apparently this is Herbet's son - who appears to be way into violins/music and has a little set up in London.
Thought I'd share in case anyone is interested given the connection etc. I just thought it was quite fascinating to discover thats all!
