Program 1694: The Carrying Stream (November 12, 2015) Week 46  

It took centuries for a ballad like “Barbara Allen” to work its way through the British Isles and across the Atlantic. Now the music flows freely back and forth as musicians from both sides of the ocean explore and fuse flavors from Celtic, Appalachian and Old Time music. This week they include Dolly Parton, John Doyle, Jean Ritchie and Anaïs Mitchell.
