AllMusic Review by

This first volume and companion piece to the popular BBC television series features performances from some of contemporary Celtic, country, and folk music's brightest stars. Led by lauded fiddler Aly Bain and Dobro legend Jerry Douglas, these sessions were recorded in the great room of an old house, resulting in a warm, congenial, and familiar earthiness that permeates standout cuts from Maura O'Connell ("Blue Train"), Rosanne Cash ("40 Shades of Green"), and bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs ("A Simple Life").
