    Rhiannon Giddens, Francesco Turrisi Host Apple Music's 'Musical Routes Radio'
    Apple Music

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi are the hosts of a new Apple Music radio show, Musical Routes Radio, all six episodes of which are now available. You can hear them now on Apple Music here, and tune in to hear them on Apple Radio Country every other Saturday at 6pm ET.

    “So much of the Americana and country music we love has roots outside of the United States,” says the show. “Take the banjo, whose rhythmic plucks can be heard in traditional bluegrass, contemporary country, and everything in between, but which originated in Africa … Illustrating the many intersections between country/roots music and global musical traditions, including Celtic music, Caribbean music, Indigenous music, and more, listeners will discover new artists, broaden their own musical knowledge, and enjoy unscripted, far-reaching conversations from two of music's most encyclopedic minds."

    "I think that, hopefully, we found a good balance of nerdery and musical connections that anybody can see," Giddens says.

    "It's listening to music, talking about music," Turrisi adds. "And hopefully we'll get some people interested in music that they aren't used to listening to."
