Track Listing
Programme One (22nd and 27th September)
This first programme in the new series features not only established favourites Karen Matheson, Cara Dillon and Andy Irvine but also exciting newcomers such as Boston’s Aoife O’Donovan, Teddy Thompson, son of the legendary Richard and, from Scotland, Ewan McLennan.

Programme Two (29th September and 4th October)
Three greats of their respective traditions grace this second programme of a new six-part feast of music - Virginian Mary Chapin Carpenter, Maura O’Connell from County Clare in Ireland and Hebridean Julie Fowlis. Tim O’Brien adds Appalachian bitter-sweet.

Programme Three (6th and 11th October)
Instrumentals have always been a key part of the Transatlantic Sessions mix. In this third programme of the new series look out for the deftly delicate guitar of Russ Barenberg, one of the Sessions’ “Founding Fathers” and John McCusker’s rollicking fiddle.

Programme Four (13th and 18th October)
Phil Cunningham joins the fun in this fourth programme in the new series celebrating the interrelated richnesses of Scottish, Irish and American traditional music. Music co-directors Jerry Douglas and Aly Bain are also to the fore along with Mike McGoldrick on pipes and whistles.

Programme Five (20th and 25th October)
Best known for his driving guitar licks, John Doyle leads off this fifth programme of the new Transatlantic Sessions with “Liberty’s Sweet Shore”, an emigrant song that mirrors his own journey from Ireland to South Carolina. Allan MacDonald closes proceedings with one of his inimitable pipe sets.

Programme Six (27th October and 1st November)
The final programme in the series features Karen Matheson, Maura O’Connell, Aoife O’Donovan, Tim O’Brien and Andy Irvine backed by Aly, Jerry and house-band stalwarts Michael McGoldrick, Donald Shaw, Danny Thompson and James MacKintosh.
