E-Chievement Award: Brad Flory
This week, eTown brings back an eclectic show for your listening pleasure. Joining hosts Nick & Helen Forster in eTown is Grammy winning, pop music icon Cyndi Lauper. Cyndi continues to mix things up as she’s always done in her career; she’s been reinventing herself as a blues singer, and she comes with songs from her CD project, Memphis Blues. Also taking the stage, (both with Cyndi as a member of her blues band and in his own separate segment) is eTown favorite and iconic bluesman Charlie Musselwhite. Charlie shares his world-class harmonica skills and great vocals in original songs (off his CD called The Well), layered in deep-country blues. Nick and Helen and the eTones provide great back up support for him too. The show is rounded out with a brief visit by world music beat masters Mohammed Alidu & The Bizung Family, plus an inspiring E-Chievement Award interview. It’s another memorable week, right here in eTown.
