A ship's manifest contains details of goods loaded and discharged. But a ship carries much more than just physical cargo. Shetland's fiddle music has long been shaped by the islands' place at the 'crossroads of the sea'. Catriona Macdonald grew up with this music, and has long been fascinated by the connection between fiddle and sea.
This film is part of the New Connections Across the Northern Isles series.
