E-Chievement Award: MaryEllen Schneider
This week’s eTown highlights writers and readers! Singer-songwriter and Grammy Award winner Jakob Dylan returns to eTown with songs from his critically acclaimed CD project called Women & Country (he brings talented friends Kelly Hogan and Paul Rigby to back him up). Also, innovative and genre-bending artist and banjo pioneer Danny Barnes visits eTown. He’s been called “one of the most wildly inventive musicians on the planet.” Hosts Nick & Helen Forster and the eTones dig in instrumentally and vocally to support him. And the E-Chievement Award is presented to a dog-loving Chicagoan who is helping inner-city kids read. Tune in for this ‘back by popular demand’ episode of eTown!
