Pokey Lafarge and the South City Three / Shovels and Rope

this week, hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome two world-class Americana groups to eTown. Guitar-plucking troubadour Pokey LaFarge and his band, the South City Three share the sounds of America?s past in a way that makes it almost impossible to believe these guys are still in their 20s. Shovels & Rope, a Charleston, South Carolina-based husband and wife duo, also bring a one-of-a-kind sound made with old guitars, harmonicas, soulful singing and a junkyard drum kit. Plus, our in-person eChievement Award interview is an environmental activist and co-founder of Earth Day

Art Of The Song 7:00 am
Birds Of Chicago

our guests this week are JT Nero and Allison Russell, together known as Birds of Chicago. Defying categorization, their brand of rock and roll poetry centers around the vocals - Nero's fractured country soul croon and Russell's smooth tones create a harmony blend that?s truly captivating. Fired by the band, it?s a full tilt revival - streamlined poems, deep grooves, sharp hooks and joyful singing straight from the heart. We spoke with JT and Allison in our Albuquerque studios
