American Routes: Routes to Recovery

Production of ten two-hour radio programs featured on American Routes that explore how a variety of communities use musical traditions to recover after economic downturns.

American Routes proposes a special "Routes to Recovery" series of topical programs and features. Building on prior NEH-supported programming and drawing on the experiences and insights of the past four post-Katrina years, American Routes will produce ten two-hour programs focused on the theme of economic and social recovery through culture in a variety of settings-all expressed in the words and music of artists, with critical advice and interpretation by humanities specialists. Out of the many field feature and interview segments embedded in these programs up to twenty will be offered in shorter edited form to NPR's All Things Considered and, if appropriate, to other major news outlets such as BBC Radio 4's Americana which has also expressed interest. Features and interviews will also be made available at separately or as part of the program.
