Italians, allegedly, are fanatical about three things: Opera, football and wine in that order. Devonians have altogether different priorities, with Folk ballads, rugby union and cider high on the agenda. But perhaps this is about to change; because the Opera Dudes are coming to your aria (sorry) this February.

Before the month is out, amateur renditions of “Nessun Dorma” will be ringing out from shower cubicles across the county.

“We get a lot of blokes coming up to us at the end of the show,” says Tim Lole, one half of the duo. “They say, “Hate opera. Only came ‘cause my...

Peter James Millson’s gloriously melodic 2014 debut ‘Sweet The Love That Meets Return’ (produced by Danny George Wilson) drew critical comparisons with the likes of Paddy McAloon, Jackson Browne and Roddy Frame.

Then started doing portraits for The Guardian newspaper. Met lots of heroes of the music world. Published a book of photos called Home Entertainment. The National Portrait Gallery acquired six of my portraits. One of which...
