    Liam Logan is in Ballycarry, a village in east Antrim, for the opening of ‘The Weaver’s Trail’. This is a new cultural tourism project marking the life and times of James Orr, Ulster’s foremost weaver poet.

    In north Antrim, the Dark Hedges near Armoy give their name to a new piece by composer Elaine Agnew. Elaine tells Liam about the inspiration for this work which gets its world premiere at the London Proms next month.

    Kist drops by more celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee, when Ulster-Scots folk are performing at Stormont’s biggest party.

    Mark Thompson gives a flavour of an Ulster-Scots bus tour in North Down and Ards, coming up later this month.
