This Nashville-based bluegrass band was founded by Ronnie and Rob McCoury, sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury. The boys continue their father’s legacy of stellar bluegrass music, along with band members Jason Carter (fiddle) and Alan Bartram (bass). And an exceptional gospel/soul/R&B vocalist, Liz Vice, also joins us. We’ll round things out with a moving eChievement Award story about a Syrian American citizen whose nonprofit is bringing crucial support to those suffering from the war in her native Syria.

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.
