WHEN singer Roddy Woomble is in town, he always pops in to the Idler Academy to say hello and buy a few books. Last year we were lucky enough to have Roddy and friends playing a lunchtime gig in the shop. Here’s a clip from that show where Roddy sings the folky cowboy classic, “Green, Green Rocky Road”.
