Transatlantic Sessions 3
Six episodes, Friday 14 September-Friday 19 October
BBC Two Scotland and BBC Four 8.30-9.00pm
Against a backdrop of the Highlands, Transatlantic Sessions 3 brings together the best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland to perform what has been called “the greatest backporch shows ever”.
Music co-directors on the series, produced by Pelicula Films, are Jerry Douglas, who has worked with Nashville’s greatest names, and Scotland and Shetland’s own fiddle virtuoso Aly Bain MBE.
They have assembled a special array of musicians and performers to play duets and set pieces in the atmospheric location of Strathgarry House near Killicrankie in the Perthshire Highlands.
Part of BBC Scotland’s commitment to Highland 2007 – a year long celebration of Highland culture, the six-part series is also part of BBC Scotland’s year long celebration of music – Scotland’s Music 07.
