E-Chievement Award: Ed Gross & Harve Timeus
Back by popular demand, eTown hits the road again heading to Griffin Concert Hall in Fort Collins, Colorado. Nick & Helen Forster welcome talented singer/songwriter Josh Ritter back with his Royal City band. Josh was named one of the 100 greatest living songwriters by Paste Magazine. Also joining us this week is the band The Hold Steady. Known for their heavy rock n’ roll sound and intense narrative lyrics, they shift gears and perform a special pared down, acoustic set for eTown. And we’ll share another wonderful E-Chievement Award story, this time one that highlights two hard working, dedicated individuals making a positive impact in the National Forest area in their region.
