In early March, eTown Radio hosted a very special taping performance with bluegrass generals Greensky Bluegrass at Boulder, CO’s eTown Hall. Americana singer/songwriter Israel Nash was also a featured guest throughout the live radio taping experience.
Nick Forster, a founding member of Hot Rize, and his wife, Helen Forster, hosted and moderated the evening’s activities as they’ve done since co-founding the 501c3 non-profit nationally syndicated radio broadcast/podcast in 1991.
Following the recent release of their new album, Greensky Bluegrass worked through All For Money tracks “Wish I Didn’t Know”, “It’s Not Mine Anymore”, “What You Need”, “Do It Alone”, “Like Reflections”, as well as the title-track. For their encore, the quintet collaborated with Nash and the eTown house band for a cover of Katy Perry‘s 2008 hit single “I Kissed A Girl”.
eTown has shared a plethora of video, including a behind-the-scenes look at how Nick Forster convinced the band to step out of the box and cover the song, which you can watch below:
