Welcome to the Transatlantic Sessions,

0:00:080:00:11

the best of Nashville, Ireland and Scotland.

0:00:110:00:13

A Highland location all to ourselves,

0:00:130:00:16

it's been called the greatest back-porch show ever,

0:00:160:00:19

and that's what we're here for.

0:00:190:00:21

I do this every day!

0:00:340:00:37

43, take two.

0:00:370:00:38

# Love created songs... #

0:04:580:05:02

He just wrote it, like brand new Willie Nelson.

0:05:020:05:05

It's amazingly inspiring.

0:05:050:05:08

Lifetimes can go by and he still comes up with stuff like that.

0:05:080:05:12

He's just a genius.

0:05:120:05:13

# I guess my heart just settled back to earth

0:05:170:05:22

# I rode a dream so wild and free for all that dream was worth

0:05:240:05:32

# But true love can be a blessing and a curse

0:05:320:05:39

# I guess my heart just settled back to earth

0:05:400:05:46

# And now I just how you felt so long ago

0:05:480:05:54

# When the dream for you had ended and you let me know

0:05:560:06:02

# So I rode from sky to sky

0:06:030:06:07

# Trying to keep the dream alive

0:06:070:06:12

# But everything I did just made it worse

0:06:120:06:18

# I guess my heart just settled back to earth

0:06:200:06:26

# Love created songs that I still sing

0:06:280:06:35

# Love we knew still makes the rafters ring

0:06:350:06:43

# So tonight I'll sing for everything I'm worth

0:06:440:06:50

# For all the hearts that settle back to earth

0:06:520:06:58

# Love created songs that I still sing

0:07:320:07:39

# Loving you still makes the rafters ring

0:07:400:07:47

# So tonight I'll sing for everything I'm worth

0:07:470:07:54

# For all the hearts that settle back to earth

0:07:560:08:02

# Oooooooh

0:08:160:08:18

# Oooooh-oooooh-oooooh

0:08:180:08:23

# Our love will never have a final verse

0:08:300:08:38

# I guess my heart just settled back to earth. #

0:08:400:08:48

I think it broadens people's minds when they come here

0:08:570:09:00

because when you see what they can do with all these instruments, then they can change.

0:09:000:09:04

Maybe they're in a band with the same instruments all their life

0:09:040:09:08

and then they come here and say, "Well, yeah..."

0:09:080:09:10

-Then they go home and fire everybody!

-Yeah, they fire everybody!

0:09:100:09:14

# In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky

0:09:140:09:21

# That's the place where I trace my bloodline

0:09:230:09:29

# And it's there I read on a hillside gravestone

0:09:290:09:37

# "You will never leave Harlan alive"

0:09:370:09:45

# Well, my granddad's dad walked down Katahrins Mountain

0:09:500:09:57

# And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride

0:09:570:10:03

# He said, "Won't you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler

0:10:030:10:11

# "Or we'll never leave Harlan alive"

0:10:110:10:16

# Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning

0:10:160:10:24

# And the sun goes down about three in the day

0:10:240:10:32

# And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you're drinking

0:10:320:10:38

# And you spend your life

0:10:380:10:42

# Just thinking of how to get away

0:10:420:10:46

# No-one ever knew there was coal in them mountains

0:10:480:10:54

# Till a man from the north-east arrived

0:10:540:11:00

# He was waving 100 bills

0:11:020:11:04

# And he said "I'll pay you for your minerals"

0:11:040:11:08

# But he never left Harlan alive

0:11:080:11:16

# My granny, she sold out cheap and they moved out west to Pineville

0:11:240:11:29

# To a farm where big Richland River winds

0:11:290:11:36

# I bet they danced them a jig

0:11:360:11:39

# And they laughed and sang a new song

0:11:390:11:43

# Who said we'd never leave Harlan alive?

0:11:430:11:51

# But the times got hard and tobacco wasn't selling

0:12:200:12:26

# And old Granddad knew what he'd do to survive

0:12:260:12:32

# He went and dug for Harlan coal

0:12:320:12:37

# He sent the money back to Granny

0:12:370:12:41

# But he never left Harlan alive

0:12:410:12:48

# Where the sun comes up

0:12:490:12:54

# About ten in the morning

0:12:540:12:58

# And the sun goes down

0:12:580:13:02

# About three in the day

0:13:020:13:06

# And you fill your cup

0:13:060:13:09

# With whatever bitter brew you're drinking

0:13:090:13:14

# And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave

0:13:140:13:21

# And the sun comes up

0:13:210:13:24

# About ten in the morning

0:13:240:13:28

# And the sun goes down

0:13:280:13:32

# About three in the day

0:13:320:13:35

# And you fill your cup

0:13:350:13:38

# With whatever bitter brew you're drinking

0:13:380:13:42

# And you spend your life

0:13:420:13:44

# Digging coal from the bottom of your grave

0:13:440:13:52

# Oh, you will never

0:14:150:14:18

# Leave Harlan alive. #

0:14:180:14:25

Ally's a massive inspiration to me and lots of other young musicians from Shetland

0:17:320:17:37

and for him to ask me to come along was just great

0:17:370:17:41

'and Julie Fowlis from North Uist who's a singer and whistle player,

0:17:410:17:44

'she's here as well so it's nice to have one of my comrades around about.

0:17:440:17:50

'It's great to have someone to experience it all with as well

0:17:500:17:54

'and talk about it for years to come!'

0:17:540:17:56

# Oladh neo na oladh cach i

0:21:080:21:16

'You have to cut loose a bit and hope that everyone else's input takes it to another place

0:21:500:21:55

'and sometimes it's not very far from where it first originated

0:21:550:21:58

'and other times, it might be miles away,'

0:21:580:22:01

but the trust and faith of the other people involved is just amazing.

0:22:010:22:06

# This is really not my home

0:22:080:22:13

# Oh, where are you my lovely Johnny?

0:22:130:22:17

# I'm afraid and all alone

0:22:180:22:22

There is no peace for me

0:22:220:22:27

# I'm sitting in the stranger's room

0:22:280:22:33

# Playing at the stranger's table

0:22:330:22:39

# Shining empty like the moon

0:22:390:22:43

# There is no peace for me

0:22:430:22:48

# But in the darkness struggle cold

0:22:480:22:53

# I think about a garden valley

0:22:530:22:59

# Gentle as the leaves unfold

0:22:590:23:04

# Singing out across the bay

0:23:040:23:09

# Distant and so far away

0:23:090:23:14

# There is no peace for me

0:23:140:23:18

# I'm blinded by your city lights

0:23:190:23:24

# I wander through these fearful places

0:23:240:23:29

# The colours fade to black and white

0:23:290:23:34

# There is no peace for me

0:23:340:23:38

# And these are not the friends I know

0:23:390:23:45

# These are not their smiling faces

0:23:450:23:49

# A desert that no-one should know

0:23:490:23:54

# There is no peace for me

0:23:540:23:58

# But in the darkness struggle cold

0:23:590:24:04

# I think about a garden valley

0:24:040:24:09

# Gentle as the leaves unfold

0:24:090:24:14

# Singing out across the bay

0:24:140:24:19

# Distant and so far away

0:24:190:24:24

# There is no peace for me

0:24:240:24:28

# Now I know and feel it well

0:24:510:24:56

# Poor immigrants' deep sunken feeling

0:24:560:25:02

# Standing at the gates of Hell

0:25:020:25:06

# There is no peace for me

0:25:060:25:11

# Burned out by their master's greed

0:25:120:25:17

# Cruel exile transportation

0:25:170:25:22

# Robbed of every love and need

0:25:220:25:27

# There is no peace for me

0:25:270:25:31

# And in the darkness struggle cold

0:25:320:25:37

# I think about a garden valley

0:25:370:25:43

# Gentle as the leaves unfold

0:25:440:25:49

# Singing out across the bay

0:25:490:25:54

# Distant and so far away

0:25:540:25:59

# There is no peace for me

0:25:590:26:03

# There is no peace for me. #
