Transatlantic Sessions Comes to Town Hall on Thursday Night

May 2nd, 2017

For more than two decades, Transatlanic Sessions has periodically been bringing together a gathering of folk heroes for collaborative live performances by leading folk and country musicians from Scottland, Ireland and North America, as part of an award-winning BBC TV series. And now going on its seventh season, Transatlantic Sessions begins a new chapter with a U.S. tour with the likes of Jerry Douglas (above, performing “Route Irish”) and Aly Bain, featuring such special guests as Rosanne Cash, Mary Chapin Carpenter, John Paul White, Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan, Declan O’Rourke and Karen Matheson. And while this might sound like the kind of thing you could only see on PBS, you can actually watch this incredible mix of traditional and contemporary music with elements of country, bluegrass, Cajun and Celtic folk live tomorrow night at Town Hall.
