Transatlantic sessions

The 17th edition of the genre-defying Transatlantic Sessions will be returning to the Symphony Hall in Birmingham. A fresh cross-generational array of Scottish, Irish and US folk and country stars will be joining the regular all-star instrumental line-up on Friday 7 February.

The show stars Tennessee native Sierra Hull, a member of the supergroup First Ladies of Bluegrass, as well as US singer and instrumentalist Cahalen Morrison. And Transatlantic goes ‘trans-Pacific’ with the appearance of Australian-born guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. From Ireland comes Dervish’s dynamic frontwoman Cathy Jordan and finally Scottish ‘folk noir’ singer-songwriter Rachel Sermanni completes the bill.

The Times said, “No other concert series is as downright joyous as these long-running celebrations of Celtic and American traditional music.”

Tickets are priced from £33. For more information contact the Box Office 01212 121982 or visit thsh.co.uk.
