NATIONAL HERITAGE FELLOWS 2019
American Routes celebrates this Thanksgiving weekend with words and music from the National Heritage Fellows Concert in Washington DC. Since 1982, the National Endowment for the Arts has presented the fellowships. It’s America’s highest honor in Folk & Traditional Arts. We’ll hear a mix of this year’s fellows live from the stage, including Texas ranchera elders Las Tesoros de San Antonio, Basque accordionist Dan Ansotegui, Malian balafon player Balla Kouyate, and African American storyteller Linda Mama Goss, as well as great recordings of fellows from years gone by.
