    eTown Time Capsule 2010 - The Indigo Girls / Nathaniel Rateliff

    eTown Time Capsule 2010 - The Indigo Girls / Nathaniel Rateliff

    We continue our dive into the eTown archives with this exceptional 2010 rebroadcast (full episode) with the Indigo Girls, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray. This was originally an ‘eTown on the road’ show done from the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, Colorado, with a bit of intrigue thrown in: When Amy misses her plane, Nick, Helen, and the rest of the eTones are enlisted to fill in in her absence. While they make beautiful music with Emily in the first set of the show, the question arises: Will Amy make it to the theater in time to join Emily for their second set in the show? Tune in and find out. Also on the program for his first eTown visit is now iconic singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff, who was an up-and-coming young artist at the time. The E-Chievement Award honors a dedicated Fort Collins citizen who shares his story about helping abused children with us.

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.
