There's a certain bowing, to me,

1:18:121:18:15

that goes with some of this fiddling that...

1:18:151:18:18

Pfft... I feel like a dog staring at a ceiling fan.

1:18:181:18:22

INTERVIEWER LAUGHS

1:18:221:18:24

"How'd you really do that?"

1:18:241:18:25

One, two, three.

1:18:251:18:27

# Oh, a long, long time ago when I left my home, you know

1:18:431:18:47

# Down in the hills of Tennessee

1:18:471:18:51

# There's the sweetest little girl that was ever in this world

1:18:511:18:54

# Down in the hills of Tennessee

1:18:541:18:58

# Oh, little girl of mine in Tennessee

1:18:581:19:02

# I know she's waiting there for me

1:19:021:19:05

# Someday I'll settle down in that little country town

1:19:051:19:09

# With that little girl of mine in Tennessee

1:19:091:19:13

# Oh, she begged me not to go

1:19:281:19:31

# "You'll be sorry, don't you know

1:19:311:19:33

# "For the way that you've been treating me"

1:19:331:19:36

# So I rambled all around but it never could be found

1:19:361:19:40

# To take the place of her in Tennessee

1:19:401:19:43

# Oh, little girl of mine in Tennessee

1:19:431:19:47

1:20:141:20:18

1:20:181:20:21

# I can see her smiling face standing there beside the gate

1:20:211:20:26

# Down in the hills of Tennessee

1:21:191:21:22

1:21:391:21:45

# And if my love is real

1:21:451:21:48

# And how I know I'll make it through

# Cos I believe in you

1:22:081:22:13

# They show me to the door

1:22:161:22:21

# They say "Don't come back no more"

1:22:211:22:25

# Cos I don't be like they'd like me to

1:25:121:25:15

# Oh, even that couldn't make me go back

1:25:151:25:24

# Don't let me change my heart

1:25:301:25:35

# Keep me set apart

1:25:351:25:39

The best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland in an award-winning format that affords, in the words of one critic, a unique insight into the sheer joy of making music.

Recorded in a beautiful old hunting lodge at the entrance to Glen Lyon near Aberfeldy in the Perthshire Highlands, top vocal and instrumental exponents of the country and Celtic traditions gathered to rehearse and play together with no audience except themselves and a resident house band of their peers. As with previous series, music co-directors were Nashville's Jerry Douglas and Shetland's Aly Bain.

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

The final programme in the series features fiddle-player John McCusker, piper Mike McGoldrick, American trio Alison Krauss, Sarah Jarosz and Amos Lee and, in a house-band sign-off to bring the house down, legendary bass player Danny Thompson and percussionist James MacKintosh.
