Music rec.

Fly by post to say, if you're in Scotland, you should try to catch Phil Cunningham's "Scotland's Music" on BBC2. If you're not in Scotland then... I dunno, try to find it somewhere online?

I caught the second episode tonight which explores how Scots relate love and loss through music, from traditional Gaelic laments through to 90s 'Glasgow Sound'.

Go to this site, scroll down ignoring Eddi Reader with Ae Fond Kiss because she's just... annoying now she thinks she's the be-all and end-all of Burns songs until you get to James Grant singing Land O The Leal. It's the audio from the show so it's got Phil talking over it a little, but seriously - go listen to it now please.
