The Crafter's Song - Tartan Day on Ellis Island [16:39]
"The Crafter's Song" was the first documentary film produced in America about National Tartan Day. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Cliff Robertson, the film was produced by the Clan Currie Society in collaboration with Metaphor Pictures of New York. The film explores Tartan Day through the eyes of four of Scotland's premiere crafters during their exhibition on Ellis Island in 2003 as part of the Clan Currie Society's annual Tartan Day on Ellis Island program produced in partnership with the National Museums of Scotland. Each craft represents part of Scotland's "portable culture" that was brought with Scottish immigrants to North America from Colonial times to the present. Featured in the film are Hamish Moore - the celebrated bagpipe maker, teacher and international performer, Wilma Couper - a knitter with the Shetland Working Textile Museum, Robert McBain - a master tailor and kilt maker, and Colin Adamson - a producer of violins, violas and cellos for world class musicians. In addition, the crafters are joined by New York violinist, Lisa Gutkin - a performer with the contemporary Celtic band, Whirligig. The award-winning documentary debuted on YouTube on Tartan Day, April 6, 2012 in tribute to Cliff Robertson, who died on September 10, 2011 -- one day past his 88th birthday.
