Dylan Jewers is a Dartmouth folklorist and music producer whose obsession with roots music led him to establish Big Turnip Records, a label devoted to recording and preserving roots music in Atlantic Canada. In this one-hour documentary Jewers is on the hunt for unique traditional music and he’s taking us along for the ride. Drawing inspiration from renowned Nova Scotia folklorist Helen Creighton, Jewers is on a personal quest to track down unique Nova Scotian musicians whose music bridges the gap between the past and the present. Stripped down, raw and authentic!

Having participated in competition surfing since he turned 11, a 14-year-old Scottish champion Ben Larg, is not afraid of a challenge, and what bigger challenge for a young surfer than one of the biggest and most dangerous cold-water waves in the world at Mullaghmore, Ireland. If he gets it right, he joins an elite group. If he gets it wrong, the consequences are terrifying. Danger, opportunity, and parental dilemma collide propelling Ben and his family towards an unknown destiny.
