E-Chievement Award: Bo Cable
eTown hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome two unique experimental musical artists from both coasts for this week’s broadcast/ podcast. LA-based indie folk band Lord Huron is both a musical and visual project originally created by Michigan native Ben Schneider. What began as a solo project of homemade recordings inspired by the shores of Lake Huron has blossomed into a full collaborative outfit comprised of Ben’s childhood friends who bring a wide variety of instruments and sound effects. Also joining us is Brooklyn-by way of Ohio musician and visual artist, Joseph Arthur. Joseph made his first stop in eTown a couple of years ago, where he used loop pedals and an acoustic guitar to create lush soundscapes with a do-it-yourself approach. Great music and conversation, plus an inspiring E-Chievement Award winner feeding the hungry in his own backyard.
