During the video several of Tammy's friends including Ally Bain, left, who was Tammy's first pupil and international virtuoso and Charlie Simpson pictured right, who is the leader of the Shetland Fiddlers Society, recounts about Tammy the man and his role in promoting Shetland's traditional music worldwide.
There is archive footage of Tammy enjoying a tune with some of his pupils and friends and to add another dimension to HEARD's contribution to a great man, some excellent footage of Eshaness' dramatic cliff scenery was filmed from the air and used as a backdrop in the video.
Joan Tait read some excellent poetry in dialect and Mary Blance told a trowie story about the 'Shapiltie's Hol'. This is a legendary water-horse in local folklore and relates to the water mill being considered by HEARD for renovation.
Tammy Anderson is also one of the folk featured in 'Folk fae da Past' and it was because he was born and brought up in Eshaness and due to the vast contribution he made to Shetland fiddle music that HEARD decided to honour his memory by having a video made about him.
The video project took almost eighteen months from start to finish and was partly recorded by film maker Malcolm Younger in May 2004, during a concert arranged by HEARD in the Eshaness Community Centre.
