Slide guitar master Sonny Landreth joins us in eTown for this week’s encore airing. Sonny is a musical gem, and we are happy to have him back. In fact, Eric Clapton concurs with what we in eTown have known all along: Sonny is “probably the most underestimated musician on the planet and also probably one of the most advanced.” Juliana Hatfield makes her first eTown appearance. The ETones, with Nick & Helen Forster, provide instrumental and vocal backup for her. Also, Nick interviews author and naturalist Terry Tempest Williams in her return visit to the eTown stage. And this week’s E-Chievement Award goes to an Illinois man who is working to alleviate hunger in his community. This is a phenomenal hour of music and conversation, with a finale performance you won’t want to miss. Be sure to tune into eTown!
