Show Number: 1242
Air Dates: October 17, 2012 - October 23, 2012
E-Chievement Award: Cindy Dittmer
eTown welcomes blues and R&B supergroup Tedeschi Trucks Band this week. While both Derek and Susan have made solo stops in eTown over the years, this visit was the first for the husband and wife duo’s all-star band when this show originally aired in 2011. Individually they are amazing (in 2010 they each received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album), and together they bring the house down! Gifted musician, painter and poet Joseph Arthur takes the stage (with a little help musically from Nick & Helen ). There will also be a special, grassroots hero from Illinois sharing her inspiring E-Chievement Award story. Be sure to join us!
