August 27, 2006 - Matt Epp

August 27, 2006

An abbreviated episode to allow for a great one hour special about Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions CD, and to allow me to recuperate from my recent ear surgery (I’m fine now, thanks.)

We did find time however for a visit from our old pal, Winnipeg singer/songwriter Matt Epp, who was preparing for the release of his second CD, Love in Such Strong Words.

Some days, it’s really good to be me. This day was definitely one of those. This show featured a live, in-studio visit by the great singer/songwriter Bob Schneider from Austin, TX. Bob’s blend of pop, rock, hip-hop, and folk makes him one of my absolute favourites, and a perfect example of what this show is supposed to be all about. It’s diverse, it’s interesting, and best of all, it’s a lot of fun. He came in to chat and even played a few songs live for us. Very cool indeed.

This week marks the sad end of summer festival season. I’m off marking the occasion with one of the biggest and best of the season, The Edmonton Folk Music Festival. Big stars and big fun await. While I’m away, a pre-recorded show that should not disappoint. First up I’ll brag about some of the great acts I’m going to see in Edmonton, but then, a whole lot of great new music. Some from the mail bag, some brand new releases, and some that’s just new to me.
