Wayfaring Stranger with Phil Cunningham - BBC

The first episode aired last Thursday and is currently available on BBC iPlayer here. It is a superb telling of our musical heritage. Previous attempts in years gone by - such as Bringing It All Back Home (1992) and the Translatlantic Sessions - have not understood - and therefore left out - the Ulster-Scots dimension, and so became merely Scottish and Irish. This puts 'us' centre stage, with groundbreaking research and marvellous new discoveries. You just have to watch it - drink it all in with a Parting Glass at the end of episode one. Just wonderful!

Thanks for the share! Alas, it does not play here in the states. I'll look for it on DVD or something later.
