Transatlantic Sessions (Pelicula Films Ltd for BBC Scotland, BBC4 and RTE) brings together the best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland in a format developed by director Mike Alexander that affords, in the words of one critic, “a unique insight into the sheer joy of making music”. 

Star performers featured in previous series include Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Nancy Griffith, Iris Dement, Joan Osborne, James Taylor, Guy Clark, Ricky Skaggs, Paul Brady and John Martyn.
Beyond their UK and Irish television platforms, Transatlantic Sessions are released on 
DVD, in CD selections and via commercial download by Edinburgh-based Whirlie Records. 

In recognition of the contribution Transatlantic Sessions has made over the years to the development and 
appreciation of traditional music, Mike Alexander and producer Douglas Eadie received The Good Tradition trophy at the 2010 
BBC Radio Two Folk Music Awards.
