patrick watson 680x385This week’s show features Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson, as he makes his first visit to eTown. Patrick grew up in Montreal and has some of the art-music sensibilities that remind us of Rufus Wainwright or Gregory Alan Isakov. Also joining us is another Canadian singer-songwriter and eTown veteran, Basia Bulat. This is her second eTown, and she’ll be sharing songs from her upcoming album that’s produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. We’ll also have an inspiring conversation with an eChievement Award winner who is helping unemployed coal miners in West Virginia find meaningful work and income so they can support their families.

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.
