eTown first came into existence as a radio program in 1991 and has grown into of an affluent member of the Boulder music scene. Featuring musicians musicians, pioneers, and staples, eTown’s mission is to “educate, entertain, and inspire a diverse audience, through music and conversation, to create a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable world.”
The 21 year dream of finding a home was accomplished in 2012 when eTown purchased the Spruce Street Church. The renovated church gave birth to eTown Hall, a multi-purpose space dedicated to community, performance and recording. The old gym became a studio, the worship hall became a venue and the commercial kitchen has been expanded for community outreach programs.

Helen Forster moved to Telluride in her early 20’s and quickly became an instrumental member of the arts community in the area.
