Legendary bluesman Taj Mahal makes his way back to Etown this week. Taj is celebrating his 40th year of performing, and we are treated to a characteristically eclectic and exciting set of music from him and longtime band mates Bill Rich and Kester Smith. Then Martha Wainwright (talented daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and sister of Rufus) makes her first Etown appearance. The Etones, featuring Nick & Helen Forster, provide instrumental and vocal backup for her. Plus, Nick engages energy industry expert and attorney Mike Beatty in an intriguing conversation about our nation’s energy needs and natural resources. And this week’s E-Chievement Award goes to a man from Virginia who is helping to build and sustain communities in need here and overseas. Don’t miss this excellent hour of music and information, all in Etown!
