North Americana

Sarah Burke here from SiriusXM Canada.

I’m so excited to launch a new weekly show on SiriusXM Channel #359, North Americana.  I’ll be your host for Sunday Service.   We will gather every Sunday in the name of Americana Music, to both worship our founders, and preach about new artists that you need to know. Every Sunday, I’ll catch you up on new Americana releases from the founders of folk, introduce you to emerging roots artists, and feature exclusive studio interviews & performances. It’s a look at the week that was in Americana music, and Sunday IS the day of rest, so let me provide the soundtrack.
