Hilton Valentine Keeps Skiffle Going Strong
The Animals' original guitarist plays
Guitarist Hilton Valentine became famous as a member of the British invasion group The Animals. Originally from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Valentine now lives in Connecticut, and performs this Saturday night at the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook.
WNPR's Ray Hardman caught up recently with Hilton Valentine, and Jeff Walls, guitarist and producer of Valentine's latest album, a collection of originals, early rock and roll, and British skiffle music.
