A lot of bluegrass is very technical

1:04:251:04:28

and a lot of bluegrass fiddlers practise Bach.

1:04:281:04:32

It's kind of...

1:04:321:04:34

In a way, it's close to jazz.

1:04:341:04:37

It's in between old-time music and jazz.

1:04:371:04:40

There's lots of licks in bluegrass music

1:04:401:04:43

and they have their own way of playing,

1:04:431:04:45

their own way of phrasing things

1:04:451:04:47

and you've got to be pretty slick to get into that.

1:04:471:04:51

Took him to Japan. Loved it.

1:10:201:10:23

'I see a lot of these people on my travels.

1:10:231:10:25

'To meet them all like this in a place like this

1:10:251:10:28

'and to spend a few days together,

1:10:281:10:30

'that's a luxury you rarely get

1:10:301:10:32

'with fellow musicians.'

1:10:321:10:34

We're always on the go.

1:10:341:10:35

So to get to know people a little bit better as well, has been incredible.

1:10:351:10:39

# I am the driver on a western highway

1:10:511:10:57

# From mountains to the sea

1:10:571:11:03

# There's a song on the western highway

1:11:031:11:09

# It's saying I will be free

1:11:091:11:14

# The sky is fading to the colour of the valley

1:11:171:11:23

# Dust of angel and dust of dreams

1:11:231:11:29

# And your city lights will shine until tomorrow

1:11:291:11:36

# And I will not be here

1:11:361:11:41

# Your light is brighter than

1:11:411:11:47

# Anything I've ever seen

1:11:471:11:53

# And I hear your voice on every station

1:11:531:11:59

# Singing out your dream

1:11:591:12:05

# Here I am on the road again

1:12:051:12:12

# The song began and then in the end

1:12:121:12:16

# I was standing by

1:12:161:12:21

# Was standing by the sea

1:12:211:12:26

# And by the roadside the trees are shivering

1:12:391:12:45

# Black and silver in the cold night air

1:12:451:12:51

# And under the moon a new song is singing

1:12:511:12:57

# Saying I will meet you there

1:12:571:13:02

# Your light is brighter than

1:13:031:13:09

# Anything I've ever seen

1:13:091:13:16

# I hear your voice on every station

1:13:161:13:22

# Singing out your dream

1:13:221:13:27

# Here I am on the road again

1:13:271:13:34

# The song began and then in the end

1:13:341:13:39

# I was standing by

1:13:391:13:43

# Was standing by the sea

1:13:431:13:48

# And your light is brighter than

1:14:111:14:16

# Anything I've ever seen

1:14:161:14:23

# And I hear your voice on every station

1:14:231:14:28

# Singing out your dream

1:14:281:14:34

# Here I am on the road again

1:14:341:14:40

# The song began and then in the end

1:14:401:14:46

# I was standing by

1:14:461:14:49

# Was standing by the sea. #

1:14:491:14:55

I think she goes...

1:15:081:15:10

SHE SINGS

1:15:101:15:12

I come from a lot of working class people who just get jobs

1:15:181:15:22

and go to work and that's kind of what I was planning on doing.

1:15:221:15:25

Once I sort of put the music out there a little bit, got on stage,

1:15:251:15:29

was hanging around with songwriters and musicians, it really got me.

1:15:291:15:33

I really started to be inspired and wanting to give it a go.

1:15:331:15:38

So I figured if I can pay my rent and I can buy some food, I'm cool.

1:15:381:15:43

# When I look into your clear blue eyes

1:15:551:16:01

# I could cry, I could cry

1:16:011:16:06

# When I think of what they've put you through

1:16:071:16:13

# You know it tears me up inside

1:16:131:16:18

# Left alone in the darkest night

1:16:201:16:27

# By the ones you've trusted most

1:16:271:16:31

# How can they expect you to

1:16:331:16:38

# Be such a gracious host?

1:16:381:16:45

# When you look upon that heart of shame

1:16:571:17:03

# Now I have to face

1:17:041:17:10

# All these accusations Questions that are

1:17:101:17:17

# Aimed at your disgrace

1:17:171:17:23

# Now you're left in the darkest night

1:17:231:17:30

# By the ones you trust the most

1:17:301:17:34

# But now just follow blind ambition

1:17:361:17:41

# Like a promise of unknown costs

1:17:411:17:49

# When I look into your clear blue eyes

1:18:131:18:20

# I could cry, I could cry

1:18:201:18:26

# When I think of what they've put you through

1:18:261:18:32

# You know it tears me up inside

1:18:321:18:37

# You know it tears me up inside

1:18:391:18:44

# You know it tears me up inside. #

1:18:451:18:52

# I went out late one night

1:23:111:23:14

# The moon and stars were shining bright

1:23:141:23:19

# A storm come up and the trees come down

1:23:191:23:23

# I tell you, boys, I was waterbound

1:23:231:23:26

# Waterbound on a stranger's shore

1:23:271:23:30

# The river rising to my door

1:23:301:23:34

# Carried my home to the field below

1:23:341:23:39

# I'm waterbound, nowhere to go

1:23:391:23:44

# Carved my name on an old barn wall

1:24:161:24:20

# No-one would know I was there at all

1:24:201:24:24

# The stable's dry on a winter's night

1:24:241:24:27

# If you turn your head you can see the light

1:24:271:24:32

# A black cat crawling on an old box car

1:24:321:24:36

# A rusty door and a falling star

1:24:361:24:40

# Ain't got a dime in my nation sack

1:24:401:24:44

# I'm waterbound and I can't get back. #

1:24:441:24:48

# It's, I'm gone and I won't be back

1:25:201:25:24

# If you don't believe me count my tracks

1:25:241:25:28

# The river's long and the river's wide

1:25:281:25:32

# I'll meet you boys on the other side

1:25:321:25:36

# So say my name and don't forget

1:25:361:25:40

# The water still ain't got me yet

1:25:401:25:43

# Ain't nothing but I'm bound to roam

1:25:431:25:47

# I'm waterbound and I can't get home. #

1:25:471:25:51

Yeah-hoo!

1:25:531:25:55

I have just been here for, like, two days

1:26:341:26:36

and I've already just been so inspired and started writing songs.

1:26:361:26:40

Great.

1:26:401:26:41

It's been amazing and, I mean,

1:26:411:26:44

especially at such an young age, to get to be a part of all this

1:26:441:26:48

and be surrounded by so many amazing musicians,

1:26:481:26:50

it's an amazing learning experience.

1:26:501:26:52

# Follow me down through the cotton fields

1:27:011:27:06

# Moon shadow shine bright the way you will

1:27:061:27:10

# Lead us down a road where no-one goes

1:27:101:27:14

# We can run away

1:27:141:27:16

# Come take my hand while I'm waiting here

1:27:181:27:23

# Get away from it all and find what's real

1:27:231:27:27

# If we don't get out now the chance won't reappear

1:27:271:27:31

# We can run away

1:27:311:27:33

# Hold me tight and don't let go

1:27:361:27:44

# Sweet and soft no-one will know

1:27:441:27:52

# We can run away

1:27:521:27:57

# I buried my heart in a willow tree

1:27:571:28:02

# You came along, gave it back to me

1:28:021:28:06

# Now we're creatures of the night

1:28:061:28:09

# We set each other free

1:28:091:28:11

# Run away with me

1:28:111:28:13

# Hold me tight and don't let go

1:28:151:28:24

# Sweet and soft no-one will know

1:28:241:28:32

# We can run away

1:28:331:28:37

# Lay with me down by the riverside

1:28:591:29:04

# Stars in the sky shining in your eyes

1:29:041:29:08

# We won't make a sound no-one will be around

1:29:081:29:13

# We can run away

1:29:131:29:16

# Hold me tight and don't let go

1:29:161:29:25

# Sweet and soft no-one will know

1:29:251:29:33

# We can run away

1:29:331:29:37

# We can run away

1:29:371:29:39

# We can run away

1:29:391:29:41

# We can run away

The best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland in a format that affords a unique insight into the sheer joy of making music. Recorded in an old hunting lodge at Glen Lyon near Aberfeldy in the Perthshire Highlands, top vocal and instrumental exponents of the country and Celtic traditions gather to rehearse and play together with no audience except themselves and a resident house band.

Music co-directors are Nashville's Jerry Douglas and Shetland's Aly Bain and artists include Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Phil Cunningham, Jerry Douglas, Mike McGoldrick, Danny Thompson, John Doyle, John McCusker, James Mackintosh, Muireann Nic Amhlaoidh, Donald Shaw, Amos Lee, Alison Krauss, Sarah Jarosz, Russ Barenberg, Dirk Powell and Nollaig Casey.

Leavening the intimacy of the music-making is a strong element of Highland scenic photography, while a greater emphasis on informal backstage conversations and stories serves to highlight the series' historic qualities of collaboration and performance.
