E-Chievement Award: Josh Nesbit
eTown returns to the historic Boulder Theater to welcome back blues legend and guitar virtuoso Robert Cray, along with New Orleans rocker Anders Osborne. Robert Cray’s love for soul and blues music began at an early age, and you can hear it in his sound. Now with more than 35 years of recording and performing under his belt, five Grammys and an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame, Cray’s musical trajectory is showing no signs of slowing down. Joining Robert Cray is eTown newcomer Anders Osborne. New Orleans’ OffBeat magazine recently named Osborne the Crescent City’s Best Guitarist for the second straight year, and also awarded him with the Best Roots Rock Artist title. Expect lots of great collaboration between our guests this week, as well as an inspiring E-Chievement Award story about a man that is using used cell phones to make a difference in people’s lives in developing countries. That’s all this week, in eTown!
