On February 15, 2020, Brian O’Donovan broadcast A Celtic Sojourn live from the WGBH Studio at the Boston Public Library, where a live audience enjoyed an afternoon of music steeped in the Celtic roots. Mari Blackand Cory Pesaturo kicked things off with a fiddle and accordion extravaganza. The duo celebrated the release of their new album Unscripted, and the audience enjoyed an exploration of musical styles, including rhythmic jazz tunes, blazing klezmer horas, passionate tangos, playful American rags, driving Celtic reels, and more.

Nathan Gourley and Laura Feddersen, two well known Boston-based traditional fiddlers, continued the show with their old-style twin fiddling. Hailing from Indiana and Wisconsin, they bring an American accent to an Irish tradition that dates back hundreds of years. The duo will also be performing at this year's A St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn.
