Tales From Tin Pan Alley - A Documentary Feature of 84 minutes. The Press are talking about this film and it's winning international awards ...

"Henry Scott-Irvine's film is very good: rich in humour, anecdote and a history stretching from pre-war opium dens through the years when sheet music sales were crucial to the popular song industry, the advent of skiffle, the birth of rock ‘n’ roll, the Swinging Sixties, when future giants hung out in coffee bars and laid down tracks in tiny studios; and the influx of instruments makers and the now-disappearing guitar shops.

Scott-Irvine has been in the thick of a campaign to Save Tin Pan Alley – or what he can of what he likes about it – and has produced a crowdfunded documentary about its history and some of the musicians who have written, sung, played and recorded there – an astonishing roster that includes Englebert Humperdinck, the Rolling Stones, the Sex Pistols", says former Guardian journalist Dave Hill in his ON LONDON feature of August 27th 2018
