Described as 'an old-time string band', Carolina Chocolate Drops combine bluegrass influences, soulful vocals and rhythmic fiddle playing to create stunning live shows. They play live for us ahead of their show at this year's Celtic Connections.

Julian Marshall's new song cycle 'Angel in the Forest' receives its world premiere this week. He is in the studio to talk to Sean and introduce excerpts performed by tenor James Gilchrist and six cellists!
