Bio: Transatlantic Sessions

Transatlantic Sessions brings together the best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland in a format that affords, in the words of one critic, “a unique insight into the sheer joy of making music”. Dobro master Jerry Douglas and celebrated Shetland fiddler Aly Bain lead an all-star band from the US and UK, including Phil Cunningham, Donald Shaw, Danny Thompson, Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker, James MacKintosh, Russ Barenberg, and John Doyle, and featuring special guest stars Rosanne Cash, Sarah Jarosz, John Paul White, Aoife O’Donovan, Declan O’Rourke, Karen Matheson, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Having originated as an award-winning BBC television series (going on its 7th season), the Transatlantic Sessions tour has become a treasured annual event in the UK that brings together master musicians to celebrate the music from their unique and shared musical traditions. This tour marks the first multi-city tour in the US and begins a new chapter in the continuing evolution of the Transatlantic Sessions, bringing it to US audiences for a special evening of music!

Bio: Jerry Douglas

Called "dobro's matchless contemporary master," by The New York Times and lauded as "my favorite musician" by no less than rock legend John Fogerty, Jerry Douglas could have been a musical innovator on any number of instruments. However, as a teenager, Douglas adopted the relatively obscure and unexplored Dobro, and that decision has helped him carve out a unique place in American music. By discovering the capabilities of this expressive instrument during a period of intense creativity in acoustic music generally, Douglas has wielded incalculable influence on bluegrass and its many related genres. His transcendent technique and his passionate musicality have helped him net twelve Grammy Awards and numerous International Bluegrass Music Association awards. Douglas holds the distinction of being named Musician of the Year by The Country Music Association (2002, 2005, 2007), The Academy of Country Music (ten times), and The Americana Music Association (2002, 2003). In June 2004, the National Endowment for The Arts honored Douglas with a National Heritage Fellowship, recognizing his artistic excellence and contribution to the nation's traditional arts. Jerry Douglas is a most innovative musician, both solo and as a member of groundbreaking bands including The Country Gentlemen, J.D. Crowe & the New South, Boone Creek, The Whites, Strength in Numbers (with Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer, and Mark O'Conner), and since 1998, a key member of Alison Krauss + Union Station. As a recording artist, Douglas's distinctive sound graces more than 2000 albums, including discs released by James Taylor, Phish, Paul Simon, Bill Frisell, Earl Scruggs, Ray Charles, Lyle Lovett, Bill Evans, the Chieftains, and the 8 million-plus selling soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou. The restless creative spirit, which is the common thread in his eclectic discography, also is prominent through every moment of is most recent solo releases, The Best Kept Secret (Koch Records) and the 2007 collection Jerry Douglas: Best of the Sugar Hill Years (Sugar Hill Records), highlighting selections from five of his trailblazing recordings. Jerry Douglas was a featured player at Eric Clapton's 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival. Douglas has recently completed work as Music Director for Transatlantic Sessions 3, a weekly television special airing on BBC TV during autumn 2007, featuring highly acclaimed artists from Scotland, Ireland, and America. This BBC project has reunited Douglas with his long time collaborator, Sir Aly Bain.
