E-Chievement Award: Adam Roberts
Nick & Helen Forster welcome special guests The Civil Wars to eTown this week in this ‘back by popular demand’ broadcast/ podcast. This indie duo, Joy Williams & John Paul White, became a sensation after one of their songs was played on the hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy. Since then, their ascent has been almost meteoric, winning Grammy Awards for Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo in 2012. Also joining us is bluegrass singer/ songwriter Sarah Jarosz. Jarosz is one of the most talked about young singer-musicians today: The New York Times described her as “one of acoustic music’s most promising young talents”. All this, plus intimate conversations with the musicians and an inspiring E-Chievement Award winner from D.C. who’s doing great work around the world.
