TRANSATLANTIC SESSIONS, SERIES 5 - THE FINEST FOLK MUSIC SESSIONS FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC
Transatlantic Sessions 5 brings together the best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland in a format developed by director Mike Alexander that affords, in the words of one critic, “a unique insight into the sheer joy of making music”.
Sessions director Mike Alexander keeps things simple, allowing no technical tricks nor fancy movements to come between the viewer/listener and the music. That way the richness of the music and the skills, fun and passions of the musicians and singers come direct, maybe as close as it s possible to get to live music. Once again this unrivalled series presents six programs of roots music at its very best.
