Kintra – with tales from Sugarloaf Mountain, where Ulster-Scots tunes find an Appalachian twist, a cockpit turned mission hall and fond memories of Alex Blair.

Kintra – the Ulster-Scots magazine programme with Helen Mark and friends. The music of the Apollo’s Fire ensemble tells a tale of how tunes from these shores were reshaped along the eastern coast of America. There’s a yarn about how an old cock-fighting pit was ‘converted’ to a Mission Hall after the 1959 Revival and a fond look back at a great friend of the Ulster-Scots community who died recently – Alex Blair.
