Big Ears Festival Preview with Ashley Capps

In the echoes Podcast a preview of the Big Ears Festival 2023. Founder Ashley Capps had his musical epiphany with The Mothers of Invention and their second album, Absolutely Free which, like all early albums from Frank  Zappa, had the Edgar Varese quote, “The modern day composer refuses to die.”  Capps took that to heart with his musical exploration and Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN.   He tells us about some highlights of the line-up that includes John Zorn, Morton Subotnick, Charles Lloyd, Bill Frisell and Ibeyi and more. Open your ears wide on Echoes from PRX.
