760993735 295x166For this week’s encore broadcast, we welcome back genre-bending singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist John Butler to the show this week. John is usually joined by his band as the John Butler Trio, but for this special episode, he joined us solo for an intimate, stripped down set. Also with us is long-time eTown friend and talented, thought-provoking folk singer/songwriter Eliza Gilkyson. Lastly, sandwiched between all that wonderful music is an inspiring story about a couple who founded an organization that provides much needed practical support for refugees from numerous countries, creating community, enabling self-sufficiency, and instilling hope for the future in the process.

eTown airs Wednesday nights at 10 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the go - download the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes & Google Play.
