E-Chievement Award: Jon Bowermaster
eTown celebrates the return one of the world’s most respected recording artists, Natalie Merchant. Backed by her band, Natalie shares both brand new tunes and beloved favorites. It’s been ten years since she was last with us, so this is a very special show indeed. Hosts Nick & Helen Forster also welcome the Horse Flies for their first-ever eTown appearance, bringing their mesmerizing blend of rock, roots, folk, bluegrass and ethnic grooves. And the E-Chievement Award this week honors noted oceans expert, award-winning journalist, author, filmmaker, and adventurer, Jon Bowermaster, who joins us in person. There’s something for everyone waiting for you this week, in eTown!
