Daniel Hope, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Julian Marshall

Presented by Sean Rafferty. With music from violinist Daniel Hope, old-time string band Carolina Chocolate Drops, and composer Julian Marshall's new song cycle Angel in the Forest.

Presented by Sean Rafferty.

British violinist Daniel Hope is one of the world's most in-demand violinists and is known for his dynamic live performances. Ahead of his concert with the BBC Symphony Orchestra he performs live in the studio and talks to Sean about his career.

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!
