E-Chievement Award: Ken John
This week, eTown hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome two newcomers to the eTown stage: Scottish indie-rock band Frightened Rabbit and California-based singer/ songwriter Nataly Dawn. The stage moniker Frightened Rabbit comes froma name lead singer/ guitarist Scott Hutchinson’s mother gave him in his youth due to his chronic shyness. After a decade of playing together, Frightened Rabbit joins us with a bold set of intimate and complex songs that brought the audience to their feet. Nataly Dawn is also with us this show: What began as a YouTube sensation quickly went viral, and Dawn joins us with quirky songs from her recent solo project. It’s an episode full of great music, conversation and a great in-person E-Chievement Award winner this week, taking to the streets to help the homeless get back on their feet.
