In this rebroadcast eTown hosts Nick & Helen Forster pack up the crew and hit the road for Jacksonville, Oregon to be part of the annual Britt Festival Music Series. With us for this special eTown ‘on the road’ program is the multi talented band Railroad Earth, who provide Americana music at its progressive-bluegrass, jam-band best. And The Travelin’ McCourys make their first visit to eTown: this stellar group features the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury (Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo) who continue their father’s musical legacy with fiddler Jason Carter and bassist Alan Bartram (also of Dell’s band). And there’s an in-person E-Chievement Award interview with an Oregonian who’s helping to feed the hungry in his community and beyond. All this for you, this week in eTown!
