Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, and a session with veteran American folk singer Tom Paley.

Tom Paley released his first LP in 1953 - he was in his mid-twenties, and the album was called 'Folksongs of the Southern Appalachian Mountains'. Now in his mid-eighties, he has just released a new album, and is embarking on a major concert tour to promote it. He is best known as a member of the New Lost City Ramblers, who Bob Dylan cites as a great influence. Tom left the USA in the 1960s and settled in London.
