This week on eTown (Feb. 19 2020):

Väsen / Sam Amidon

ECHIEVEMENT AWARD: Robert Adamson (One Bistro)

This week’s eTown program features a deep dive into folk music styles from around the world. First up, the prolific Swedish folk band Väsen makes its first appearance on the show. Their musical collaboration has spanned decades; theirs is a rich, unique, beautiful sound, and their performance on eTown features rare, one-of-a-kind instruments. Joining us for his second visit to eTown is American folk artist and multi-instrumentalist Sam Amidon, who shares his recent stripped down musical explorations. Plus we’ll bring you a great eChievement Award story about an Ohio man who created a “pay what you can afford” restaurant in his community to serve those in need, while bringing a wide variety of citizens, rich and poor, together to share a meal and connect each day.

You can hear eTown every Wednesday night at 10:00 pm on KRCB FM Radio 91; streaming at norcalpublicmedia.org; on the FREE NorCalPublicMedia App and on your home smart speaker.
