Roots & Branches is hosted by musicians, songwriters, musicologists, teachers, mentors and instrument makers Ken Keppeler & Jeanie McLerie, known around the block and around a few continents as Bayou Seco.

The program airs every Saturday morning from 8am – 10am and also features live performances by Bayou Seco and their guests.
