Greater Manchester Fringe 2015


American Wilderness Odyssey


Join three adventurers on an incredible journey, searching for the moonshine, myth and madness of the American Wilderness. An evening of stories and songs. Tales of outlaws, ghost towns, the emigrant, the doomed lover, the extraordinary lives of ordinary people, real and imagined. Written from the nitty-gritty experience of months-long treks and road trips, off the main strip, along the backwoods and byways of the southern states of America, Steve Bonham and The Long Road bring to life the songs and stories from their acclaimed American Wilderness Odyssey album and its companion book

Their music is definitely acoustic but of a powerful and stirring kind. Big melodies and great riffs abound and the stories they wrap round them are intimate and expansive, funny and moving. The Long Road consist of Steve Bonham, the Vagabond Philosopher, Kev, the ‘Big Man’ Moore and Chris’ the Bishop’ Lydon all desperados seeking some kind of redemption,

“Ambitious, hypnotic, brooding, infused with sadness and joy, capturing the panorama of its physical and emotional canvas … irresistible.”
Mike Davies – FATEA Magazine
