Episode 255: EppyFest 8 Preview

This is the 255th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). The main focus for this show is to preview my own upcoming live music event EppyFest 8, happening in Cheltenham on the evening of Saturday 20th July at Smokey Joe’s. You’ll hear tracks from all four of the acts playing at EppyFest this year, including a feature album, ‘Interconnected’, the latest album by Tim Burness who will, along with his band, be headlining EppyFest 8. We’ll also cover the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, as we feature music from bands/acts who have played at previous EppyFests, play some tracks connected to this year’s Winter’s End Festival & Cheltenham Jazz Festival, & there’s also some music I’ll be playing, well, just because I really like it, basically. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
