Linton Music Festival will return in 2015 as music series

From the Linton Community Development Corporation:

The Linton Music Festival will not be held on Labor Day Weekend at Humphreys Park this year as it has since its beginning in 2005. The Linton Community Development Corporation, the local non-profit organization that oversees production of the festival, is currently reorganizing the event to return in 2015 as an ongoing music series to offer more music-related events throughout the year.

“The support from fans, local artists, and our sponsors has been tremendous ever since the first event kicked off 9 years ago”, said Jared Albright, festival founder and director. “We feel that a change in format for LMF is necessary. We see this not as an ending to the festival we know, but a new beginning. A music series will allow us to produce more events throughout the year and provide more opportunities for the local community to be exposed to the musical arts. We also hope that more frequent events will draw visitors to Linton on a consistent basis and provide a boost to our local economy.”

Fans can visit LintonMusicFest.com for updates later this year or follow Linton Music Fest on Facebook and Twitter.

About WT Feaster
So what’s Indianapolis guitarist WT (Travis) Feaster all about? Intense guitar playing, impassioned vocals – a rock blues hurricane!WT Feaster performs outstanding, mind bending, diamond hard riffs which scream with an edgy intensity, creating a sound as heavy and raucous as Alvin Lee and as distinctive as Stevie Ray and Jimi Hendrix.A fiery blues rock guitarist and southern soul blues belter with original material and Texas/Chicago inspired blues, WT Featser band is in the vanguard of the Mid west Rock/Blues scene.The boundless energy, telepathic musicianship and a flourish of six string ferocity is reminiscent of early Eric Clapton and Cream.

WT (Travis) Feaster made his name on the mid west “Young Guns of Blues Guitar” tour as well as being a leading light on the Chicago Blues Tour – a new take on an old concept – that took in eight clubs and ten bands.

His debut album the aptly titled ‘Long Overdue’ proved to be the perfect context for his impassioned fiery playing, while several high profile appearances in Europe including the Maryport Blues Festival cemented a growing reputation.

Influence by blues greats like Albert King, Bill Perry, Junior Wells, Alvin Lee, and rockers Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix, WT combines strong songwriting with impossible licks and a fiery sense of purpose that puts him near the top of the new generation rock and Blues scene.
