Mumford & Sons on eTown. . Need I say more?
By Helen ~ February 26, 2013
We’ve got a GREAT show for you this week:
If you haven’t heard of Mumford & Sons by now, I suspect you’ve been living in a cave, or at least in a foreign land where there is no media or internet exposure whatsoever. These four talented guys just won two Grammys, for Best Album and Best Music Video. They have an amazing, high-energy sound that you will love (plus they’re sweet, cute, funny guys too).
Also with us for this rebroadcast: Internet successDanielle Ate the Sandwich (that’s Danielle Anderson and her band). She’s quirky, funny and musically brilliant. And her conversation with Nick is worth tuning in for alone (rarely have I seen him left speechless). As I said the first time this aired, I don’t think I’ve laughed so much at a show in a long time.
And we’ve got a cool E-Chievement Award story for you as well, that points out the very real, continued need for aid in New Orleans (hard to believe, but its still recovering from the storm after all these years).
So there you have it; tune in! (see videos below to whet your appetite).
Also, check out the New Yorker article on Terry Allen, who’ll be coming to tape an eTown show with us soon. It’ll make you want to fly in from wherever you are living and attend this one! He is the coolest.
AND if you live in the Boulder, CO area and you know of any talented teens who are aspiring songwriters, have them check out The Handmade Song Series. They can win a chance to compete for recording their own original song at the glorious new recording studio at eTown Hall AND get a professionally made music video too! Check it out, then pass it on will you?
Have a great week, talk soon,
