Sponsored by WEXT 97.7

with special guest MaryLeigh Roohan

Though England is his place of birth, the songs Bobby Long writes are redolent with pieces of Americana. Perhaps that's because he now lives in New York City, a place he feels more at home than he did while living in his native country. In 2009, Long made the move to the States after emerging from London's open-mic night scene with a reputation for creating memorable songs inhabited by hauntingly poetic lyrics. A student of songcraft, Long's reverence for American music runs deep, with influences ranging from country greats like Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb to folk singers Woody Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and modern day luminaries like Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith.

The Latest News

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More
