'I hope the DVD shows people the experiences you can have when you're exploring folk music. There's one I come back to often that's also in the film. I'm in the small living room of a Sicilian man as an incredibly mournful folk song, recorded by Alan over 60 years ago, is starting to soar from the speakers. I watch this middle-aged man hear his late father's emotional tenor, see his eyes fill up, and feel mine do the same. To me, that moment captures what all documentary should aim to do: capture moments that are just as real, profound and truthful.'
