Our First Show from eTown Hall! With musical guests: City and Colour / Birds of Chicago

What an absolute thrill, our first show from eTown Hall! And I’ll be very sad if you don’t join us for this most monumental occasion. Let me tell you about it: Nick & I welcome renowned Canadian singer and songwriter, Dallas Green, who performs under the moniker City and Colour. He has an unmistakable sound, […]

Reflections on Recent Tragedy, and Info On This Week’s Show…

Hello everyone. I feel the need to address the terrible tragedy that occurred a week ago here in Colorado; it would be ridiculous not to do so. First, because I know a lot of you expect me to, as I always do in this blog, let me briefly tell you what’s coming up in this […]

The Benefits and Challenges of Being American . . Seeing the World with New Eyes . . And This Week’s Show:

First, this week’s broadcast/podcast details: Nick & I welcome two musical guests who are true originals, each with their own identifiable, unique sound (when you hear them, you know immediately that it’s them). They are also totally different from each other (something we take pride in here at eTown, pairing seemingly disparate musical entities). The […]

The scoop on this week’s broadcast/podcast, plus some random ‘visionary’ thoughts:

Boy oh boy, am I excited! Love the broadcast/podcast we have for you, airing the week of 6/20 to 6/26: First-time eTown visitors The Infamous Stringdusters take the eTown stage, bringing their very own special sound, reflecting the old and new, the classic and progressive. This hugely popular bluegrass band is awesome in my book. […]

Additional thoughts on Doc, plus info on this week’s show on-the-air:

Got a great re-broadcast for you this week. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure how we managed to pack all the great stuff (the music, the various conversations, a KILLER E-Chievement Award story) we did into this hour of eTown, but somehow we’ve managed to so. The result? A classic eTown experience. Here’s a […]

Minor thoughts about mortality . . plus news of this week’s broadcast/podcast:

I’m counting my blessings today; it’s a beautiful, balmy, blue sky day, and I just left the office to do some work back at home on our deck upstairs. From where I type this, I can see a lovely bird’s eye view of the large yard below. Right by the deck I’m sitting on is […]

This week’s broadcast/podcast details (w/ guests The Jayhawks & Justin Townes Earle):

eTown hits the road and heads north to the Lincoln Center this week; the venue is located in our home away from home, Fort Collins, Colorado. Our musical guests include Justin Townes Earle and The Jayhawks: After a lengthy hiatus, the original members of The Jayhawks reunited last year behind a long awaited, chart topping […]

A Magical Musical Night in L.A. plus the scoop on this week’s broadcast/podcast:

This week eTown welcomes back some old friends, the nationally renowned band Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Nick and I have known these talented guys since they were just getting started, and it’s been so great to watch their meteoric rise to the top. Since the band got its start more than 20 years […]

Thoughts about Fox News, global warming and this week’s broadcast:

What’s not to love about Lyle Lovett? He and his large band, plus blues icon Taj Mahal, join us this week in a repeat of a special eTown program, originally recorded in late August of 2010. Nick and I and the eTown crew return to the breathtakingly beautiful Red Rocks Amphitheatre located outside of Morrison, […]

We did it!! The Operational Grant Match for 2011 fulfilled . . . AND this week’s incredible broadcast:

For your listening pleasure: Mumford & Sons rocked eTown’s world when they were originally with us a year or so ago; it’s been one of THE most requested programs of the past, so much so that we had to re-air it for you. We head just a short distance down the road from the historic […]
