Great Britain

Commentator Brian O'Nuanain reflects on the changing relationship between Britain and Ireland and his hopes for the future. 

Airs Thursday, October 10 at 8 p.m. When immigrants from Great Britain and Ireland arrived in the Appalachian region of the United States in the 18th century, they brought with them the musical traditions of their homelands. These traditions were extended, refined and combined into a variety of American roots music styles, including a distinct musical form called bluegrass. In this episode, we listen to one of the finest bluegrass ensembles in our time, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out.
