Highland Hip

Here’s one for Croila:

Forget the skirl of the pipes and the screech of the fiddle, Scottish music just got funky. Sally Magnusson travels throughout the Highlands, meeting young musicians who are giving traditional music a contemporary twist.

Harpist Ingrid Henderson is building a state-of-the-art music studio on the shores of Loch Shiel. She’s determined to base her career in the Highlands, the source of a new brand of vibrant music which is popular from Buckingham Palace to Arisaig.

To be aired today at 15:45-16:00 GMT so you’ll have to get your skates on, that’s about 45 minutes from now.

For comedy fans a welcome return to Tina C’s State of the Union Tour. The last series a few years ago was very funny.

Missed them? Both programmes should be availabe for 7 days after broadcast on the Listen Again page.

p.s. Fan-flubbing-tastic!

    We had a local band that played a type of rock music with pipes and a fiddle. It was wild and weird. I don’t know where they went, tho. Maybe they’re over there with you folks.

    Now that’s my kind of music too, think I saw the programme highlighted somewhere, must ‘listen again’.

    Oooh, thanks for the link! Will have a wee listen today :-)

    Good for Ingrid Henderson in building her studio here. She’s a fantastically talented musician – there’s a good wee interview with her here that’s worth a read.

    I missed it all. I could spend all day attatched to Radio 4.

    I know you’re not here, but I am, so I have to say – Helooooo! I see you have had quite a bit of rain. I do check in on your weather site frequently and it’s about the same as my eldest’s sons area in Illinois. Peace, lovely lady.
