Thomas Fraser: Shetland Lone Star
BBC Scotland documentary produced by Hopscotch Films telling the story of Shetland fisherman and folk musician Thomas Fraser. When Thomas Fraser passed away in 1978 he was known mainly as a fisherman even on his native Shetland. The subsequent release of a number of his music recordings, however, gradually established him as one of the most important British folk musicians. This programme utilises interviews with Fraser's friends, family and folk music specialists to tell his story.
