Program 1560:  Hands On (April 18, 2013)   Week 16

Old songs provide a lens through which we can view lifestyles and work-ways, now passed into history, when manual labors filled the day.  Hear of horse-drawn ploughs, hand loom weavers, miners and the men who fished under sail with Davy Steele, Dick Gaughan, Christine Kydd and many more.
