Post categories:

For one week only BBC Radio Scotland's Brand New Opry returns to the air/internet waves via the Celtic Zone.

The Brand New Opry ran for 15 years on the station, presented by Bryan Burnett. It changed name in 2005 to Brand New Country on the insistence of Gaylord in Nashville, the owners of the Grand Ole Opry.

This week's zone, presented of course by Bryan Burnett, features archived interviews from the show including Buddy Miller (on his release The Universal United House of Prayer), a very open and revealing interview with Mindy Smith on her debut visit to the UK, Robbie Fulks, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tift Merritt, Alison Krauss, Allison Moorer, a fascinating conversation with Marty Stuart and an excellent session from Devon Sproule.

If you're only interested in one or two of the artists then you can visit the episode page and select the relevant chapter.

Coming to the Conversation Zone next week is a male singer-songwriter zone (to be followed a couple of weeks later by a female equivalent), presented by Ricky Ross and featuring John Martyn, Richard Thompson, Justin Currie, Jim Lauderdale, Darrell Scott, Rodney Crowell, Rab Noakes to name but a few.
