E-Chievement Award: Terry Tempest Williams
This week, eTown welcomes back California rock outfit ALO and eTown newcomer Kate Earl for a not-to-be-missed broadcast/podcast. ALO originally formed in California during the late 90′s, and have been long acclaimed for their deft musicianship, potent songwriting, and astonishing on-stage interaction that you’ll certainly hear in this week’s performance. Singer/songwriter Kate Earl also makes her very first appearance on the show. Not long ago, Kate was living in tiny Chugiak, Alaska, nursing the dream to lead a musician’s life in between shifts at her parent’s small town gas station. That dream became a reality when Kate moved to Los Angeles, where she quickly warmed the hearts of musical peers, and set out to make some incredibly unique music.Author and animal activist Terry Tempest Williams also joins us for an inspiring E-Chievement Award segment. It’s a broadcast/podcast that’s full to the brim with great music, stirring conversation and, as always, an inspiring E-Chievement Award story. So be sure to join us; right here, in eTown.
