E-Chievement Award: Stan Brock
This week, 22-year-old progressive-folk singer and songwriter Sarah Jarosz makes her second trip to eTown. Rolling Stone magazine has compared her to Gillian Welch. Mojo labeled her a “newgrass prodigy” for her skills on banjo, guitar and mandolin, and the New York Times hailed her as “one of acoustic music’s finest talents. Also with us: talented Austin-based indie/folk band Wild Child, and our E-Chievement Award story this week features someone bringing mobile care to the under- and uninsured.
