1. We've seen him with the Flecktones in concert several times. He is a virtuoso.

4. Thanks! Here's some interesting facts about the Transatlantic Sessions.

Transatlantic Sessions
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transatlantic_Sessions

(snip)
Transatlantic Sessions is the collective title for a series of musical productions by Glasgow-based Pelicula Films Ltd, funded by- and produced for BBC Scotland, BBC Four and RTÉ of Ireland. The productions comprise collaborative live performances by various leading folk, bluegrass and country musicians from both sides of the North Atlantic, playing music from Scotland, Ireland, England and North America, who congregate under the musical direction of Aly Bain and Jerry Douglas to record and film a set of half-hour TV episodes. The Television director is Mike Alexander and the producer is Douglas Eadie.

In addition to the TV productions, public performances of the Transatlantic Sessions have been staged recently by some of the participating artists, receiving critical acclaim in the press and six series albums have been released in both CD and DVD format by Whirlie Records.

Jerry Douglas is one of my musical heroes. The guest lists are outstanding and I'm hoping to see several of these.....
