Transatlantic Sessions: The Best of Folk, Volume 1
(DVD / NR / 2015 / PBS)

Overview: Recorded in the Scottish Highlands, TRANSATLANTIC SESSIONS brings together 28 artists from North America, Scotland and Ireland to perform these 12 folk favorites, old and new.

DVD Verdict: Nashville's Jerry Douglas and Shetland's Aly Bain lead an array of the top vocal and instrumental artists in the Americana and Celtic traditions here on the rather delightful 'Transatlantic Sessions: The Best of Folk, Volume 1.'

Including Sam Bush, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Julie Fowlis, Alison Krauss, James Taylor, Dan Tyminski, and more, 'Transatlantic Sessions: The Best of Folk, Volume 1' was recorded with both purpose and passion. From the splendid old hunting lodge of Glenlyon to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, the magical settings for these performances are as inspiring as the beautiful acoustics and haunting lyrics that come forth.

'Jubilee' - Mary Chapin Carpenter with Karen Matheson
'Run Away' - Sarah Jarosz with Alison Krauss
'Copperline' - James Taylor
'Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad' - Eric Bibb with Dirk Powell

'Gone to Fortingall' / 'Wired to the Moon' - Jerry Douglas/ Michael McGoldrick

Complete with stars galore, also inclusive of backing musicians such as Dónal Lunny, Michael McGoldrick; Russ Barenberg and Danny Thompson, 'Transatlantic Sessions: The Best of Folk, Volume 1' is, quiet easily, one of the most incredible grouping of folk artists and songs to come together live for a decade or more.
