Susan McKeown and friends join John Schaefer for this edition of New Sounds. McKeown’s latest album, “Sweet Liberty,” offers unusual arrangements of Celtic songs, with West African and Mexican elements, along with heart-stopping renditions of traditional tunes like “When I Was on Horseback.” She and her core ensemble play unplugged in the WNYC studios and tell tales about the recording.
