The best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland in an award-winning format that affords, in the words of one critic, a unique insight into the sheer joy of making music.
Recorded in a beautiful old hunting lodge at the entrance to Glen Lyon near Aberfeldy in the Perthshire Highlands, top vocal and instrumental exponents of the country and Celtic traditions gathered to rehearse and play together with no audience except themselves and a resident house band of their peers. As with previous series, music co-directors were Nashville's Jerry Douglas and Shetland's Aly Bain.
Leavening the intimacy of the music-making is a strong element of spectacular Highland scenic photography, while this time around a greater emphasis on informal backstage conversations and stories serves to highlight historic qualities of collaboration and performance.
The final programme in the series features fiddle-player John McCusker, piper Mike McGoldrick, American trio Alison Krauss, Sarah Jarosz and Amos Lee and, in a house-band sign-off to bring the house down, legendary bass player Danny Thompson and percussionist James MacKintosh.
