Subject: The Highland Sessions repeated on BBC4
From: evansakes
Date: 19 Nov 10 - 03:50 AM

Six-part series celebrating the historical and contemporary links between Scottish and Irish Gaelic song by bringing together top exponents of both traditions to sing and play with no audience except themselves, using a house band of their peers. Australian-born Donegal resident Steve Cooney is music director and the first programme sets the talents of Mary Black, Karan Casey and Afro-Celt Sound System's Iarla O'Lionaird in a uniquely Scottish context.

Starting tonight (Friday) at 8.30 pm with various repeats. Presumably will also be on the BBC iPlayer

Followed by Bird on the Wire - Cohen's 1972 tour.

Looks like a good night's viewing.

Thanks

Hopefully someone's recording these progs. Sadly there is still no sign of the Down Home series ever seeing the light of day again. Chris B.
