Sarah Jarosz is, in my opinion, the best new artist to arrive in the last five years. Now barelt 20, she was invited to ther wonderful yearly Transatlantic Sessions programs filmed in Scotland by the programs musical co-directors, Jerry Douglas from here and Aly Bain from across the pond. Here is a wonderful video of Sarah with Alison and Jerry doing "Run Away,"

" The Transatlantic Sessions 5 were taped in March of this year, 2011. They have begun airing on BBC Scotland on Friday evenings and will follow shortly on the BBC4. This special collaborative show, in its fifth season, is a series of six 1/2 hour programs celebrating traditional and contemporary links between Scottish, Irish and American music and song. Musical directors Jerry Douglas and Aly Bain invited Sarah Jarosz to join this year's group of stellar musicians, including Sam Bush, Amos Lee, Donald Shaw, Kathleen MacInnes, Bela Fleck, Donal Lunny, Dirk Powell, Sharon Shannon and Alison Krauss to name a few. These collaborations were filmed at Glenlyon Estate in the Scottish Highlands. The guest artists each participate for a few days, performing their featured songs and joining in on other artists' songs, then rotating out as new artists arrived."

Here Sarah Jarosz moves from tenor guitar to open-back clawhammer and Jerry Douglas moves from squareneck Dobro to lap steel. Also in the jam, Sam Bush on mandolin Russ Barenburg on guitar, Michael McGoldrick and more musicians from Scotland and Ireland;

Here is the whole first half--hour episode of 2011 Transatlantic Sessions 5. The jams go back and forth between the American, Scottish and Irish musicians and their traditions. are as followed;

1. Right off the bat Jerry Douglas kicks in a "Set of Reels" that kicks ass. Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham smoke on the twin fiddles, the unique left-handed guitar player John Doyle (formerly of Solas) is on rhythm, Michael McGoldrick on Irish flute and more. A good representation of the POWER of acoustic music!

2. Next is from the African American country blues tradition with Eric Bibb picking guitar and singing "Going' Down the Road Feelin' Bad." Playing with him is the excellent Dirk Powell on clawhammer, Jerry Douglas on Dobro, John Doyle on left-handed rhythm guitar and Aly Bain on fiddle.

3. This is a wonderful Celtic tune brings the focus back to SCotland and Ireland. The song is "Oran a Cloiche" sung in Gaelic by Kathleen MacInnes and Sarah Jarosz

4. Here is a romping collaboration that bridges American roots music and Celtic music Fleck leads the way on this one with nice solos by Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Michael McGoldrick and the rest of the all-star "House Band." It builds and rolls on. A sweet tribute to the sounds of the Emerald Isle.

5. This is a slower and beautiful Irish story song by Eddi Reader "Leezie Lindsay"

6. Back to the U.S. on this one as Dirk Powell leads the way on a Appalachian stomp called "Boats Up The River." Dirk rips on clawhammer and shares the vocals with Sam Bush and there are sweet solos by Jerry Douglas on squareneck, Aly Bain on fiddle, Phil Cunningham ripping on accordion, Michael McGoldrick smoking a solo on a bagpipe-type instrument that will surprise you, and of course Sam Bush ripping on the mandolin.

7. The great Alison Krauss with all of the crew mentioned above singing the beautiful "Lay My Burden Down"


Interpsersed before, after and inbetween each song is the beautiful sites of Scotland.

Enjoy;

Simply stunning! I haven't yet seen this series so what a treat to see an early insight. I just love this music played by some of my all time favourite people from both sides of the pond. Live this flexible group of players are the crowning glory of the wonderful Celtic Connections Festival held in Glasgow each January. I've attended over the past 5 years usually catching the Transatlantic Sessions concert[s] at the climax of the two week festival. Always an absolute blast....some of the most beautiful music you'll ever hear.
Hope to make it again next year. Wow if only Sam, Bela, Sarah and Allison would join the party!!

Bela Fleck "came from a family with no music in it"?

I understood he was named after Bela Bartok?!

I think what Bela meant from that is no one in his family played a musical instrument or had a bunch of albums of any kind, and that a Jewish family in NYC probably wasn't spinning much bluegrass or Appalachian music anyhow. But it doesn't sound like they were spinning any klezmer music either. Neither side of my family tree played an instrument or much of a record collection either until my brother and I partook. Boom - Earl Scruggs' banjo in the theme and music of the Beverly Hillbillies turns him around. However, cool on the Bela Bartok mention here on the forum!
