Product Description

Product Description

The third and penultimate CD of the fifth series of the acclaimed, ever-popular Transatlantic Sessions series, filmed and recorded in 201, and shown on BBC television, with leaders Aly Bain and Jerry Douglas joined by a stellar collection of special guests, including :

Sam Bush, Phil Cunningham, Béla Fleck, Sarah Jarosz, Alison Krauss, Amos Lee, Dónal Lunny, Kathleen MacInnes, Iain Morrison, Jim Murray, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Declan O'Rourke, Dirk Powell, Eddi Reader, and Sharon Shannon.

The house band is no less impressive : John McCusker, Nollaig Casey, Russ Barenberg, John Doyle, Michael McGoldrick, Donald Shaw, Danny Thompson and James Mackintosh.


It's rare for a backing band to be more celebrated than the singers they are supporting, but that's what makes Transatlantic Sessions so special. This is a project in which the finest Celtic musicians get to work alongside their counterparts from the Americana scene, and act as a freewheeling house band for a series of soloists. --Robin Deneslow, The Guardian.

Given the success of their previous offerings I eagerly awaited the arrival of Transatlantic Sessions 5 Vol.3. I wasn`t disappointed. Same high calibre guests, superb tracks, well produced. Another cracker. Keep `em coming. Great delivery and service from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh to be a fly on the Wall. 26 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
I first caught this late one night mid series 3 and could not believe the talent that the BBC had packed into one room. I started picking up a few CD's here and there [Hard to find in the shops] and even managed to record some of the later series. I am now trying to fill the gaps in this awesome collection as I am delighted to play the albums right through, no skipping tracks even if some are only great! most are MAGIC!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series of Albums 21 Jan 2013
By C Smith
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having purchased every single one of these albums and watched the annual tv series after Celtic Connections in Glasgow in January, when I presume they all get together to record these albums somewhere in Scotland, the quality and professionalism of the musicians, the variety and styles of music provide a consistent listening experience year on year. If you get a chance to watch the the tv series that is a great way to enhance the enjoyment of the music as it takes you to the place and time and you know who sings or plays what, combined with views off outstanding Scottish countryside.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst Transatlantic Sessions Yet 29 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Other than Aly Bain, Eddie Reader and a "cameo" of Phil Cunningham this was the worst series yet. Where was Karen Matheson and Karine Polwart to name but two. Too many North American "wannabes". Waste of money.
