IT SEEMS Newcastle firm Dickinson Dees is simply bristling with musical talent.
The firm is the principal sponsor of a week-long music festival taking place in Newcastle this month. The festival, called MIX, will feature live jazz, rock classical and folk music and will see a host of internationally renowned musicians descend on the City.
However, I can't help thinking that it was rather extravagant of the festival organisers to pay for so many big names to attend when Dickinson Dees clearly has such a wealth of legal musical talent within its four walls just waiting to express itself.
