Grammy winners BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet are back in eTown in this repeat airing with their Zydeco and Cajun flavors. Bob Dylan once said this about their sound: “That’s my kind of music!”. . . and it’s sure ours in eTown, too! Texan Ben Kweller also joins us. Ben is an acclaimed indie-pop singer songwriter who is catching on fast in the music world. Nick & Helen Forster and the eTones lend their stellar musical and vocal support on some of his tunes. Nick also interviews Nicolette Hahn Niman, noted environmental activist, attorney and cattle rancher, and author of Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms. This is another in a rich tradition of fantastic eTown tapings coming to you featuring stellar music, compelling conversation, and the presentation of the E-Chievement Award, which this week goes to a grassroots hero from a small town in New York. Tune in!
