Everybody Likes A Banjo

E-Town - Wed, 10/08/2014 - 06:29

BlogBelaAbbyIf you prefer your guitars to have drum heads on them, then you’re in for a special treat with our broadcast/podcast this week. While Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have both been on the show several times in the past with various projects and configurations, this week they perform together on the show. Turns out they sound pretty swell together, too! Not only will you hear some great live music from this duo (much of which can be heard on their brand new album that also hits stores and online outlets this week), but you’ll learn a few things about banjos that you probably didn’t know during the interview portion of the show. It’s a win/win!

BlogFoyVanceAlso with us is Irish singer/songwriter Foy Vance, who makes his first visit to eTown in this week’s episode. Foy is a powerful songwriter and performer, and we were blown away by him at the taping. He also has a cool mustache – which makes for another a win/win scenario. Throw in a great E-Chievement Award story, and a never-attempted-before finale collaboration that mixes a Bruce Springsteen classic with (you guessed it) banjos, and you are on your way to a full solid hour of good listening.

Be sure to tune in or podcast this week! And check out the videos from the show, below.
