PLEASE REPOST/PASS IT ALONG
Hello to Grant Cross famous Haiku fountain and friend. I’m updating show/tour dates. I’m going places, y’all come too.
Longriver is able bodied and going north and west. Grant Cross wrote this haiku for this post occasion, published here without his permission:

The tour starts in Portland and Ends in Port Townsend on “the peninsula” as the Cascadians call it. 2 week tour, people! Tour buddies and fellow performers Travis Champ and Justin Fallen will be coming along. Want to see a flyer that Travis Champ made? Well if you have any peripheral vision, you can already see it:
What else can I say? Thanks to theElectric Fences Fest people for booking me. I’m grateful for all the help and love. I’m looking forward to seeing friends, Travis, Jamie, Katy Curtis, Chris Pappas, Celeste, Hank and the farm. All the dogs. Happy to be playing these songs, making people smile and laugh and cry. big trees, firs, and cypresses, all the evergreens. I’ll have tapes, books, records, all of it. Now I’ll go publish the shows on the “shows” page. alright, Thanks y’all.
Dear friends, Please follow the link to Crag Hill‘s month long editorial-ship of Halvard Johnson’s Truck. We’re taking a road trip, from the southern tip of I-35 in Texas to the northern tip in Minnesota, following the idea of the interstate as a creative corridor.
Here is my entry:
It’s my debut again tonight at 7pm at Malvern books with David Abel from Portland, Oregon.
Here’s a haiku for you,
Ice T, Dr. Dre
The age of Aquarius
Black socks, Birkenstocks
I didn’t expect a write up in the paper! But here it is. The Austin Chronicle’s Doug Freeman selected my SXSW showcase as one to check out. Click on the image to see all my upcoming shows:
IT’S that time of the year again. I’ve already stepped into Robert Duvall world, brushed shoulders with Billy Joe Shaver, who also just happened to be walking through Robert Duvall world. I shook hands with a TV actress. I don’t know her name or her face, so maybe that’s not worth mentioning. Yes spring is nearly here, and spring break is definitely here. The moon is nearly new, and I’m playing shows for SXSW (Please let me note here that I have an OFFICIAL SXSW show at Stephen F’s Terrace Bar). Grant MF Cross was kind and energetic enough to make a flyer for my many incarnations. He said it’s not a flyer for random passersby to see on a street pole, but a piece of art that I’ll share directly with you. So, here’s a flyer announcing my SHOWS:
that’s IT! I hope to see each and every one of you. This post would not be complete without a selfie portrait of the artist at his studio:
