When the Song Dies

The always-fascinating Aeon Film website is featuring a beautiful short film about the importance of folk songs in Scottish culture and lore. Part of the film were recorded on the island of South Uist. According to the website, "When the Song Dies seeks to bring the audience under the captive spell of the old ways. Featuring a range of contributors, the film is a poignant reminder that the dead linger on, all around us, in the houses and landscapes we live in, and in the language and music of our culture."
