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 month-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.
The show has toured across the UK to great acclaim in 2021 and 2022.
"We were lucky to host Steve Bonham and The Long Road’s American Wilderness Odyssey at Printer’s Playhouse and were treated to a truly absorbing evening which transported us all to an America brought to life with words and songs. Three true musicians in our theatre and a show full of insights and reminiscences which deserves to be seen and heard across the land!"
Chris Berry, director Printers Playhouse, Eastbourne
"American Wilderness Odyssey performed at Salford Arts Theatre in September and what a joy it was!The warmth and easy-going storytelling, coupled with the fabulous guitars and keyboard really carried me along on the journey. It was like travelling with old friends. Our audience loved spending time ‘On the road’ with the boys."
Roni Ellis, artistic director Salford Arts Theatre
