A JOHN WILLIAMS musical score, which Nether Heage folk artist John Tams helped pen, narrowly missed out on an Oscar on Sunday night.
Composer Ludovic Bource took the Academy Award for the best original score for the film The Artist.
He beat legend John Williams to the prize for his work on the Speilberg blockbuster War Horse, which Nether Heage man, John Tams helped compose.
However Mr Tams, who co-wrote the score for the War Horse stage play did take home an award after last month’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards however. His band The Home Service took the prize for best live act.
