SYNOPSIS: Touring the bonnie Scottish countryside, pop-rocker Aidan Moffat has a musical mission: To update classic folk ballads with bawdy modern lyrics. But Sheila Stewart, a 79-year-old wayfaring balladeer and Scotland’s unofficial queen of national folk anthems, doesn’t approve. And she’s not alone, as Moffat discovers on the road from Loch Ness to Falkirk in this humorous and tender ode to national heritage and the resilience of tradition.
