solar-powered

In this week’s installment of eTown, singer/songwriter and avid surfer Jack Johnson makes a triumphant return to eTown to share some of his latest music in front of the intimate audience at eTown’s solar-powered performance space – eTown Hall.

This week’s solar-powered musical meeting features an up-and-coming band that is already making waves, alongside a well-established musician who makes his first appearance on the show. Australian folk pop band Oh Pep! takes the stage to share music from the band’s debut release, plus Indiana-born / Nashville-based singer and piano virtuoso Jon McLaughlin shares some of his solo material, as well as a few songs with eTown’s house band – the eTones.

In this week’s encore broadcast, eclectic Americana multi-instrumentalists Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys make their first visit to eTown’s solar-powered stage to share their forward-looking take on American roots music. Also joining us for the first time is Swedish/Icelandic female folk duo My Bubba who share their sparse and beautiful music, as well as stories about their experiences in circus school and side jobs as locomotive engineers.

Singer/songwriter and musical powerhouse Aoife O’Donovan makes a return visit to eTown’s solar-powered stage this week.  At a young age, she has already recorded, collaborated, toured and performed with a list of musical A-listers too long to name, and we’re happy to have her back with us to share some of her latest inspirations.  Santa Cruz-based artist Marty O’Reilly and his ‘Old Soul Orchestra’ also stop in to share their one-of-a-kind sound, plus a great eChievement Award story about a California woman with a creative idea to keep waste out of the landfill.
