    2 Is It Irish, Bluegrass, Spanish, Folk or Just Great Music?

    I love good instrumental music and upon hearing this, I just bought one of their CD's.

    Transatlantic Sessions

    Transatlantic Sessions is the collective title for a series of musical productions by Glasgow-based Pelicula Films Ltd, funded by- and produced for BBC Scotland,[1] BBC Four[2] and RTÉ of Ireland.[3] The productions comprise collaborative live performances by various leading folk, bluegrass and country musicians from both sides of the North Atlantic, playing music from Scotland, Ireland, England and North America, who congregate under the musical direction of Aly Bain and Jerry Douglas to record and film a set of half-hour TV episodes.[4] The Television director is Mike Alexander[5] and the producer is Douglas Eadie.[6]

    In addition to the TV productions, public performances of the Transatlantic Sessions have been staged recently by some of the participating artists, receiving critical acclaim in the press [7][8] and six series albums have been released in both CD and DVD format by Whirlie Records[9] (see also External links, below).

    Great music is good enough

    Same roots - just like moonshine - you don't have hunt far around here to find someone who still calls it poteen.

    Just around the mountain from me is a place called Phipps' Store. Friday nights, folks get together and they play …

    Hillbillies and rednecks are just Celts in a different country

    A number of American folk artists have done tours in Ireland - see Emmylou Harris for example, with Mary Black at https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=_z9w1KOz2mY (RT 03:21) - unless you just want just instrumentals of course.

    This is what it morphed to in the USA. It's the same Jerry Douglas.

    Our daughters kind of cut their teeth on bluegrass, as I began to teach them to play guitar. We have been big fans of Jerry Douglas for years, and it is just amazing where he has turned up and with whom, over the past 30 years or so.

    During his time with Alison Krauss, the billing has always read Alison Krauss and Union Station Featuring Jerry Douglas. Her introductions of him go something like "please welcome the greatest Dobro player the world has ever known".

    This might hurt a little.

    Beautiful music. Bluegrass and Irish music hit me right in the soul. I’ve got Irish roots and deep roots in West Virginia and Southeast Ohio. The music says “home” to me.

    My Dad sure would have loved these videos.

    Andy Hall, who plays Dobro with The Infamous Stringdusters is one of the few who play at the level that Jerry Douglas does. I have mistaken him for Jerry more than once, when listening to an unfamiliar tune in this genre. These guys are fantastic, if you're of this persuasion...
