# Who will swallow long injustice...? #

0:00:270:00:32

Are you any wiser on the key there?

0:00:320:00:34

It may go up a half-step, possibly.

0:00:340:00:37

-But it doesn't sound like a problem.

-Yeah.

0:00:370:00:40

Beautiful.

0:00:400:00:42

# There are rifles buried in the countryside

0:00:570:01:04

# By the rising of the moon

0:01:040:01:10

# May they lie there long forgotten

0:01:100:01:15

# Till they rust away into the ground

0:01:150:01:21

# Who will bend this ancient hatred?

0:01:220:01:28

# Will the killing to an end

0:01:280:01:34

# Who will swallow long injustice?

0:01:340:01:40

# Take the devil for a countryman

0:01:400:01:46

# And who will say, "This far no further"

0:01:460:01:52

# Oh lord, if I die today?

0:01:520:01:58

# Send no weapons, no more money

0:02:220:02:27

# Send no vengeance across these seas

0:02:270:02:34

# Just the blessing of forgiveness

0:02:340:02:39

# To my new countryman and me

0:02:400:02:46

# Missing brothers, martyred fellows

0:02:460:02:52

# Silent children in the ground

0:02:520:02:59

# Could we but hear them, would they not tell us

0:02:590:03:04

# It's time to lay God's rifle down

0:03:040:03:10

# Who will say, "This far no further"

0:03:100:03:16

# Oh lord, if I die today? #

0:03:160:03:23

It's amazing to do something like this.

0:04:380:04:42

It's what every musician dreams of, isn't it Karen? Just hanging out with your pals,

0:04:420:04:48

who just happen to be amazing musicians and singers.

0:04:480:04:52

And to get the chance to spend a few days with them.

The song is the thing. I think everybody is there to serve that -

0:11:370:11:43

to support and facilitate what she's doing.

0:11:430:11:48

And so that's our job, you know?

This helps.

People say, "That's a fantastic sounding bass."

0:18:390:18:42

I said, "How does it sound now?"

0:18:420:18:46

Doesn't sound so hot now, does it?

Folk musicians come together in what have been called 'the greatest backporch shows ever', as Shetland fiddle virtuoso Aly Bain and dobro ace Jerry Douglas host a Highland gathering of the cream of Nashville, Irish and Scottish talent.

Featuring James Taylor, Karen Matheson, Rosanne Cash, Julie Fowlis and concluding with Liam O'Maonlai's version of the tune Nina Simone made her own, Work Song.
