E-Chievement Award: Brad Wyche
This week, eTown welcomes back a couple of old friends; the Irish sounds of musical group Solas along with musician, conceptual artist, and poet Terry Allen. Fifteen years ago, in a manner befitting their name (Gaelic for “light”), Solas burst onto the Irish music scene. Joining Solas is legendary songwriter Terry Allen, who will be making his first appearance in eTown. In addition to the 11 albums under his belt, Allen is also well known as a visual artist, with commissioned sculptures, installations, and public art works and gallery showings around the world. This show is full of great music and conversation, plus an inspiring E-Chievement Award story highlighting someone who has gone above and beyond to make a difference in their community. Tune in or podcast this week!
