Outlander Cast Chats w/Outlander Composer: Bear McCreary - Episode 15

Hosts Mary and Blake discuss all things music with the composer of Outlander, Bear McCreary.  Bear was extremely kind in carving out 20 minutes of his extraordinarily busy schedule to talk about his role on our favorite show.  So, in this very special episode, you will learn all about, how Bear researched the show, why the Skye Boat Song is used as the main title, the one thing Bear couldn't live without as composer on Outlander, what show Bear waited his entire life to compose, his awesome personal blog, the surprising character Bear wants to stand out musically, Bear's favorite Outlander theme, and a whole lot more!  You'll also learn about why Blake's in a giving mood and why Mary is like an 80 year old woman..

I've listened to a Celtic radio show for years on WMNF in Tampa called Music of the Isles. The podcast of the most recent show with playlist can be found here: http://www.wmnf.org/programs/music-of-the-isles

So nice to hear from the composer himself on the music for the show. That the theme song was written by him in college way before Outlander was to be made only adds to the "magic" that Outlander has. It is the exception to most everything on Cable/TV these days. I am so in love....

Thanks for another great Podcast Mary and Blake.

Take Care,
Sarah

Loved the interview! Very interesting to hear how the composer develops each main character's themes. I visited Bear McCreary's website and see that he performs. Would love to see him with an orchestra on stage, playing piano and accordion!
