The Dark Tale of Bonnie 'Loch Lomond'

"You take the high road and I'll take the low road..." We can all sing along to "Loch Lomond," the old Scottish tune. But for the series "What's in a Song," pianist Leslie Howard notes that the seemingly innocent tune was actually inspired by a dark chapter in Scottish history.

The What's in a Song series is produced by Taki Telonidis and Hal Cannon.
