Steve Earle / David Amram / eTown

Returning to the eTown stage is our friend, legendary country/rock singer and songwriter Steve Earle. Also with us, a true American cultural treasure: Composer/multi-instrumentalist/author David Amram. As a classical composer and performer, David’s integration of jazz, folkloric and world music has led him to collaborate with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Willie Nelson, Langston Hughes, Nina Simone, Leonard Bernstein, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Jack Kerouac and many more, for close to seven decades. Plus, our eChievement Award story this week features a woman helping a suffering village in Mali get back on their feet and on their way to self-sufficiency.
