    eTown Time Capsule - Patrick Watson - Basia Bulat

    eTown Time Capsule - Patrick Watson - Basia Bulat

    This week’s “back by popular demand” program features Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson, who grew up in Montreal; people often compare his art-music sensibilities with those of Rufus Wainwright or Gregory Alan Isakov. Also joining us is another Canadian singer-songwriter (and returning eTown visitor) Basia Bulat. Basia shares songs from a recent album, produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. And we’ll have an inspiring conversation with this week’s eChievement Award winner, a young man from West Virginia helping coal miners who’ve lost their jobs because of automation or mine closings find meaningful work and solid income so they can support their families.

Keeping me going

Been a listener to E-town for years now, first on a local radio station and then online with podcasts when the station was bought by a “national conglomerate” and stopped carrying Etown.
With the pandemic and the loss of live music with friends and family this last year has been a tough one. This podcast brings back some of the joy of live shows and keeps my hopes going for days we can all be together again, sitting outside, and enjoying a concert together.
