"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.
