Thistle And Shamrock: Song Beat

Hebridean tweed workers' songs, rowing songs, hiking songs, mouth music: their lyrics take a back seat to their integral rhythms, easing the work and keeping the singers going. Get into the rhythm of the song this week, with Catherine-Anne MacPhee, Ossian, Christy Moore, The Poozies, Alasdair Fraser and more.
