Steve Bonham & The Long Road
Steve Bonham & The Long Road is the personification of Artisan Music: a swampy brew of styles mixed from both sides of the pond, with vagabond appeal and high energy delivery. Steve’s powerful singing and guitar playing is matched by his fellow reprobates Chris ‘The Bishop’ Lydon (tuba, keyboards, cajón), John Humphreys (guitar, banjo, mandolin) and Kev Moore (bass).
The Long Road gigs are always memorable, with the unique line-up grabbing attention and keeping it with a compelling delivery of rootsy, renegade, Americana. Bonham himself has been described as ‘the songwriter’s songwriter’, and as having produced ‘a body of songs which challenge, intrigue and beguile.’
The band has performed at many festivals, including the Acoustic Festival of Britain, Littleborough MusicFest and Lichfield Folk Festival
