Escape - Shetland Bus

A special broadcast of a live recording of a suite of original music composed by Jenna and Bethany Reid. It was first performed at Celtic Connections earlier this year, then at Shetland's 'Fiddle Frenzy' festival back in August. It's inspired by the story of young Norwegian instrument maker Jan Baalsrud who, in 1943, made the journey across the North Sea from Scalloway in Shetland to occupied Norway in an attempt to help free his homeland. Narrated by Phil Goodlad.
