Scotland's Music Finale

A gentle, but well-travelled finale to Phil Cunningham's "Scotland's Music" series on BBC2. Travelling from the camel-riding pipe band in Oman, to Donegal/Ireland, to Cape Breton in Canada and down to the USA. There he plays Carnegie Hall with Johnny Cash's daughter, Rosanne - in an interesting experiment, they have composed a tune and took it to play blue-grass style in Tennessee. At one Scots/US festival, there deep-fried Snickers bars being sold.

Well done to all involved. I wasn't going to watch it when I saw the initial trailers, now I'm glad that I did. An excellent addition to my growing cultural dvd library.
