When the frontman of a band dies, can the other members carry on without him?

Together for more than quarter of a century and loved all over the world, Scottish band Shooglenifty are devastated when Angus, their fiddle-playing frontman, gets ill and dies just a few months later.

Starting with celebratory concerts in Glasgow and Galicia, the band look back on their long career, reflect on the music that Angus has left them, and - with a little help from fiddle-playing friends - get through a year of grief and introspection. As part of the process they record a moving tribute to their late frontman in the Mehrangarh Fort, Rajasthan. Returning home to Scotland, they discover that the music does indeed live on.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Don Coutts and members of Shooglenifty.
