E-Chievement Award: Della Rae
First time eTown visitors The Infamous Stringdusters take the eTown stage, bringing their special blend of bluegrass reflecting the old and new, the classic and progressive. This hugely popular band has a dynamic, original sound. Zach Heckendorf also joins eTown for his first visit. Despite his young years (he’s a high school senior), he’s already making waves in the music world. His smooth voice, impressive guitar chops, and funk infused songs have drawn an ever growing group of fans. His debut album was produced by popular folk rocker Brett Dennen. Zach has recently shared the stage with big name artists like Brandi Carlile, Guster and the John Butler Trio. There’s also a special interview with recent college grads Will Stauffer-Norris and Zak Podmore about their “Source to Sea” kayak adventure down the Colorado River, plus a moving E-Chievement Award story. We hope you can join us this week for great live music and a wealth of food-for-thought conversation.
