Guest: Julie Fowlis, Scottish Folk Musician The Gaelic language is only spoken by about 1 percent of people in Scotland today. But Julie Fowlis sings almost exclusively in Gaelic and proudly tours the world sharing the musical tradition she learned as a child. When Disney Pixar needed someone to sing on the soundtrack for the animated movie “Brave,” about a headstrong Scottish princess, they turned to her. Her new album “Alterum” is out on October 27, 2017.
