Best Musical MVP: Mark Etherington

Best Musical MVP

Local musician Mark Etherington puts 110 percent into whatever he's doing, whether he's belting out haunting choruses and strumming guitar as frontman of folk rock outfit RedFeather, pummeling drums with exultant unabashed vigor as half of the two-man rhythmic assault of set and setting, or doing the solo acoustic thing as Mountain Holler. With his fiery, wildly flying head of hair and magnetic stage presence, he’s also fun as fuck to watch. setandsetting.bandcamp.com, mountainhollerredfeather.bandcamp.com
