Presenter Vic Galloway introduces talent from Japan, Russia, Ukraine, Denmark, USA, Italy, England and Scotland.

Anna Meredith, winner of Scottish Album of the Year 2016, headlines the show, which was recorded in front of a live audience of festival goers. Performers also include: The Danish String Quartet; Italian guitar virtuoso Antonio Forcione in a new collaboration with British singer Sarah Jane Morris; and American cabaret singer, Lady Rizo.
