This week Bruce brings you a very special programme looking at the musical crossovers between classical and folk music. This includes an extended interview with Scottish virtuoso violinist, Nicola Benedetti. Nicola talks about her latest foray into folk music, with new interpretations of some Burns classics. Plus, we discover what it was like for her working with folk musicians Phil Cunningham, Aly Bain and Julie Fowlis. And Bruce even gets his fiddle out and has a tune with her.

We also hear tracks from various folk musicians who have classical connections, including Moishe's Bagel, Seth Lakeman and Dougie MacLean. Rpt.
