E-Chievement Award: Norman Cetuk
eTown travels a short distance down the road from the historic Boulder Theater to Colorado University’s Glenn Miller Ballroom in this week’s encore airing. Nick & Helen Forster welcome two musical groups who are seriously turning heads. Mumford & Sons bring their unique sound all the way from London, England. The young and spirited quartet share their earnest and high energy folk-rock sound. The British foursome has only been together for a few years, but, after listening to them, it’s easy to understand why they continue to sell out venue after venue on their US tours. Also taking the eTown stage is Danielle Ate the Sandwich (that’s Danielle Anderson and her band), who has built an impressive internet fan-base in a relatively short amount of time with her great singing and quirky, hip original tunes. Nick & Helen and the eTones join Danielle to lend her musical and vocal support. There’s also an inspirational E-Chievement Award story this week, highlighting the continued need for aid in New Orleans. It’s eTown at its finest, so don’t miss it!
