ERIC LONG – featuring Tom Relling (Hibbity Dibbity, Stow Lake), David Pascoe (The Good Bad, Late For The Train), and Jack Gehegan (Hibbity Dibbity)
With influences ranging from Mississippi John Hurt and Taj Mahal to progressive musicians like Charlie Parr and Jack White, Eric’s music is both fundamentally folk music, and also timelessly steeped in some of America’s earliest musical roots. His songs carry a remarkable knack for simplicity and his voice is one you don’t forget.
Eric plays bottleneck slide, acoustic guitar and the banjo and will be performing with a full band for this special night celebrating the release of his sophomore release: ‘A Long Way From Home.’ The band features Tom Relling (guitar) and Jack Gehegan (drums) of Hibbity Dibbity, and David Pascoe (fiddle) of The Good Bad.
The goal with “A Long Way From Home” was to create a record that feels like you’re listening on your back porch on a hot summer night with fireflies climbing up your favorite trees in the yard.
Aiming to capture a natural representation of the music rather than over-thinking the production, the record was recorded by Tom Relling in his home studio with the help of a ¼” tape machine.
These are songs of real people. These are songs of home and songs of loneliness. Songs of memory, songs of foolishness, and songs of love.
