E-Chievement Award: James Balog
This week, eTown hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome back long-time friend of the show Dar Williams and eTown newcomer Slaid Cleaves for a special episode of music and conversation recorded at eTown’s new solar-powered music and media facility – eTown Hall. eTown veteran Dar Williams joins us this time on the heels of traveling the world in support her latest collection of recordings, entitled In The Time Of Gods. When she’s not making great music, Dar uses her voice for various important social causes – making her the perfect returning guest for eTown. Also with us for his first visit is singer/songwriter Slaid Cleaves who shares a healthy portion of his unique Alt-Country sound with listeners. Along with all the great music this week, the E-Chievement Award story finds us checking in with environmental photographer and frequent guest, James Balog, who shares more insight into his work with National Geographic, as well as his latest feature length film, Chasing Ice. That’s this week, in eTown!
