Back to the Quarry is an exciting new project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which will explore the musical history of the Kimber family from Headington Quarry, Oxfordshire - from the great concertina player William Kimber, who has inspired generations of musicians and dancers, to his granddaughter Julie Kimber-Nickelson and her family who still live in the village today.
