E-Chievement Award: Tracy Oseran
Nick & Helen Forster welcome two legendary musicians who’ve been performing together for over 50 years: Jefferson Airplane founding members Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen. These Rock & Roll Hall of Famers will be in their Hot Tuna mode and will share music from their recent release, Steady As She Goes. Also returning to eTown, this time for her fourth visit, is the uber-talented pop-folk songstress and songwriter Dar Williams. She’s delighted devoted audiences for years with her down-to-earth stage presence and her insightful lyrics (The New York Times has said, “Wisdom flows through her songs in delirious, wordy rushes of truth”). We’ll also bring you an inspiring E-Chievement Award story of a grassroots hero from Oregon. Please join us, this week in eTown, for this special re-broadcast.
