First broadcast:

Sally Beamish talks to Donald Macleod about the effect of moving to Scotland on her music, and the strong sense of culture and community she found there. The lively and responsive musical scene have fed into her work, and she has drawn on the inspiration of Scotland's landscape and its musical traditions, from Scottish fiddle playing to music for bagpipes.
