Discover Edinburgh's Little Ireland in this filmic exploration of the community through traditional music.
A lyrical new film rich in music in which fiddler Aidan O’Rourke investigates the past, present and future of his home in the heart of Edinburgh’s Little Ireland. Through the prism of traditional music, this film celebrates a community built on centuries of immigration and now on the brink of fading from memory. Made collectively by Becky Manson, Mark Cousins and Aidan O’Rourke.
A co-production by Edinburgh International Festival and Hopscotch Films
Presented in association with Edinburgh International Film Festival
