E-Chievement Award: Sister Mary Alice Murphy
In this week’s broadcast, eTown heads up the road to Fort Collins’ beautiful Lincoln Center to welcome Seattle Americana sensations The Head and The Heart, along with longtime friend of the show Gregory Alan Isakov. The Head and The Heart makes its first visit to eTown to share lots of great music and insight into the origins and influences behind their collaborative songwriting process. The band started as a group of do-it-yourself musicians that met while frequenting Seattle’s open mic night scene, and just a few years later have already managed to earn a wide reputation as an emerging voice in the recording arena, as well a phenomenal live band featuring one-of-a-kind vocal harmonies and a unique instrumentation. Also joining us is South African-born, Colorado-based singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, who makes another stop in eTown to share some of his latest music and road stories with hosts Nick and Helen Forster. It’s a full episode of great music and conversation, and a great E-Chievement Award story this week. Be sure to tune in!
