Summary
Kathryn and her father go to a valley about to be flooded, and fill the houses with music one last time
Summary
Years ago, before a great dam was built to fill the valley with water, there were farms and homesteads in Kielder Water and musicians who livened their rooms with song. After the village was abandoned and before the waters rushed in, a father and daughter returned there. The girl began to play her fiddle, bringing her tune to one empty house after another — for this was the last time that music would be heard in that place
