The duo Handmade Moments mix modern folk, beat-boxing, a multitude of instruments and political commentary to make for one the best shows you can catch when they tour through Colorado.  Joel and Anna stopped by the KVNF studios to play some new music and talk with Ali Lightfoot about Standing Rock,  President Trump and the towns they'll keep going back to.
