The Folk Brothers for April 27, 2022: Transatlantic collaborations

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

This morning we presented tracks featuring exciting new musical collaborations between American and Scottish artists: Orcadian Kris Drever and Rachel Baimans' cover of Eliza Gilkyson's "Hard Times In Babylon"; Heidi Talbot and Lousiana-based Dirk Powell with "Empty Promise Land"; and Brooklyn-based Hannah Read (fiddle) and Michael Starkey (banjo), who met at an Appalachian old-time musical session in Edinburgh.

Also today: new tracks from Kate Rusby with Ladysmith Black Mambazo, The Unthanks, Peter Rowan, Nashville Honeymoon, and more!
