PART TWO:  IN STUDIO PERFORMANCE WITH JOSIAH JOHNSON, AVIVA LIPKOWITZ, AND CHELSEA COLEMAN

You may know Josiah Johnson from his work with the American indie folk band The Head and the Heart. Maybe you caught the band playing in concert at Red Rocks, or perhaps you own one or more of the band’s three major label releases. We recently caught up with Josiah and his two very musicial friends, Aviva Lipkowitz and Chelsea Coleman, as they were touring through Colorado, and we pulled them into the 91.5 KRCC studios for an interview and performance.
