Memphis singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Valerie June joins us for her first visit to eTown. Her unique sound is a mixture of folk, blues, gospel, soul, country, Appalachian and bluegrass. Singer and songwriter Mick Flannery, who hails from County Cork in Ireland, is our other musical guest. And we’ll hear from the founder of an environmental health and justice organization based in New Orleans which works with communities to help them hold state oil refineries and chemical plants in their neighborhoods accountable for following clean air standards.
