This spirited documentary, screening as part of our Scotland Week events,  propels us through master Scottish musician Alasdair Fraser’s unexpected journey as he follows his fiddle in search of his Scottish heritage and a deep sense of community.

Fraser finds himself at the epicentre of a movement of cultural reclamation that connects people around the world, challenging them to dig deep into their own cultures, musical traditions, and, ultimately, themselves.

The irrepressible Fraser proves that the groove in traditional music transcends to-tapping fun – it can be a source of personal and political liberation.
