About

Does authentic music drawn from the extraordinary stories of ordinary people move you? Are you inspired by the voice of the outlaw, the rebel, the dreamer, the misfit, and the wanderer? Do you believe art can be found in the dirt, the dust, the rivers and the roads that lie in the borderlands between safety and ruin?
If you do, you too hear the whispering voice of the vagabond.
You will love what is genuine, real and different.

We are:
  • Steve Bonham, the Vagabond Philosopher
  • Chris 'the Bish' Lydon
  • Kev 'the Big Man' Moore
Together we are The Long Road. We are committed to making music and other stuff that takes a few simple ingredients and conjures up some magic spirit... Moonshine, we call it. We want to go back to the source and reimagine it, to create something both weirdly familiar and different at the same time.

We are artisans who work with the raw materials of folk, Americana, blues and acoustic music, drawing them together with the stuff of the stories we have made and have heard, from our years on the road. The gold we find in the random chances of each day.

Will you help us explore this road further, taking you as far as we possibly can with us? Will you embrace your vagabond within? We want to share with you the myth, madness and, yes, moonshine of it all.

Become a Vagabonder to help us create music, live performances, books and short stories, theatre shows and podcasts. Become an integral part of feeding back to us during the creative process.

We are:
  • making our weekly podcast
  • experimenting with new ways of reaching current and new audiences
  • building a new theatre show called How To Be A Vagabond
  • creating vidoes for our next sets of songs
  • working on new materials for continuing the theme of exploring the Vagabond Way
You will help us create something different, something that entertains and something that inspires others. The world of the creative artist is a difficult one, especially now, when technology has impacted our traditional ways of supporing our work.

Your help will enable us to explore the great seam of possibility that lies in the daily experience of ordinary folk to write, record, develop, publish and perform. You will also help the other artisans we work with who share our values and commitment.


Join us on the journey and release the vagabond within!
