Anyone remember Aly Bain's marvellous 'Down Home' on channel 4 about 20 years ago ? What a top series. Does anyone know if you can get it on dvd - have searched around ,but to no avail. I have vol 1 of the accompanying albums on vinyl (a snip at oxfam for £2.99) great fiddlers like Tommy Jarrell, Jean Carignan and Willie Hunter. Am steadily working out the tunes - anyone got the dots for 'Gardenia Waltz' by Johnny Gimble ? - the b. part is proving arduous !
By the way, anyone else got any folkey charity shop bargains ?
