Show Number: 1351
Air Dates: December 18, 2013 - December 24, 2013
E-Chievement Award: Micki LeSueur
This week eTown is ready to ‘deck the halls’ with a very special holiday themed show, originally aired in 2011. Grammy Award winning composer and violin virtuoso Mark O’Connor and his band Hot Swing! play a special Christmas set. The LA Times calls him “one of the most talented and imaginative artists working in music – any music – today.” There’s more seasonal music when Matt Wertz takes the stage; he’s enjoyed a well-deserved rise in attention due in part to having several of his original songs featured on numerous television shows and movies. It’s a festive time in eTown, with lots of great music, stirring conversation and, as always, a heartwarming E-Chievement Award story.
