First broadcast:
Friday 22 April 2011

Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, plus a studio session with American star of country music Emmylou Harris, performing songs from her new solo album 'Hard Bargain'.

In recent years Emmylou's music has moved on from the country music mainstream to a style closer to alternative music. Her new album includes a song that harks back to the darkest days of 1950s American racism, another that reflects on her relationship with the late Gram Parsons, and one that is a tribute to fellow singer Kate McGarrigle. She talks about them, and gives an exclusive acoustic solo performance.
