E-Chievement Award: Sharon Straus
Nick & Helen welcome a group that’s gaining national recognition for their creative and eclectic approach to acoustic music. Elephant Revival has a genre-jumping style that’s been called “Transcendental Folk.” Their unique sound has reportedly earned the respect of musical peers like Bela Fleck, John Paul Jones, Little Feat and Leftover Salmon. Also with us is Austin-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Jimmy LaFave. He’s a two-time winner of the Austin Music Award category for Best Singer/Songwriter; and he is said to be one of Bruce Springsteen AND Bob Dylan’s favorite artists. Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without an inspiring E-Chievement Award story and a generous helping of great conversation.
