About the Show
Hosted by Nick & Helen Forster
This week in eTown, California-based alternative folk duo HoneyHoney makes a stop at eTown Hall to share their lush and beautiful sound on eTown’s solar-powered stage. New York City-based singer/songwriter Margaret Glaspy also brings in her unique take on guitar-driven rock songs, born from a lifetime of soaking up musical influences and knowledge from anywhere and everywhere her journey has taken her thus far. All of this, plus a great conversation about new alternative energy sources with former Governor of Colorado, Bill Ritter. That’s this week, in eTown!
