The Cheviot Hills

John Gair Robson, better known as Jack Robson, was one of the best-loved figures on Tyneside for his popular songs. These included examples in Geordie dialect such as ‘Whereivvor ye gan ye’re sure to find a Geordie’ and ‘The puddens that me mother used to myek’. More formal in style was his evocation of the local scenery of ‘The Cheviot Hills’. Robson was born in Annitsford, the same Northumbrian village as the singer Owen Brannigan. An organist and school headmaster, he used his musical talents to benefit pupils wherever he taught in Northumberland.
