Short and Sweet About The Show This Week!

E-Town - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 01:45

Two of my recent favorite young artists join us in this ‘back by popular demand’ rebroadcast:
20130718-DSC_972626-year old John Fullbright has a compelling stage presence, the likes of which I haven’t seen in a while. He’s been rockin’ stages with his original songs since he was still in high school, and he’s been going strong ever since. He hails from Okemah, Oklahoma—the hometown of Woody Guthrie. Hmmm. Maybe there’s something in the water there?
Also with us this week:
Afie Jurvanen performs under the moniker Bahamas; but he’s not from there. He’s actually a Finnish-Canadian who was raised in the working class town of Barrie in rural Ontario. 20130718-DSC_9632As soon as you hear him, though, you notice his chosen stage name is a perfect fit. His songs about sunsets and breezy loves have the lazy, hazy sound of summer. As a matter of fact, he reminds many of Jack Johnson (turns out he records on Jack’s label, Brushfire Records, so there you go).
And we’ve got another ‘in-person onstage’ award segment winner. Tom Costello joins us all the way from Pennsylvania to tell us how he got over his phobia of homeless folks and became a full-time volunteer and advocate for them. It’s a very moving story, one I know you’ll like.
All this, coming to you from our comfy, solar-powered, acoustically perfect musical facility! Be sure to check out the show.
See videos below.
Best,
Helen
