As The Long Road look forward to our impending American Wilderness Odyssey UK Tour (more info at https://www.thelongroadband.net/gigs) we have a chat about what makes a great gig - as a performer or as an audience member - and those magical moments that sometimes crop up! Steve Bonham takes us on a trip to Nowhere Town, his latest new song; Kev Moore picks up his Camino trail the very next day after his epic 35km slog; and the Bishop (Christopher Lydon) talks us through the therapy of making croissants.

Episode #62 - The Long Road to now
This episode The Long Road get together to talk about the launch of the new documentary: Rise of the Artisan (or The Long Road to now) - some behind the scenes insights, some thoughts on the Artisan Music movement we are trying to build and the "beacon lighting" we hope to achieve for others on our wavelength. Steve Bonham digs into the life of the vagabond, a life with the earth under your feet. Kev Moore brings us the next entry in his Camino journal. The Bishop takes us through his recent pretzel making experience.

Episode #60 - Plant flowers in your neighbour's garden
This week, The Long Road reflect on our first live gig together in a over a year, the surprises, the enjoyable moments, the funny thoughts you have whilst performing.

Episode #59 - Some well trousered yearnings
"The songs that never should have been" perhaps, this week, along with "the roads never travelled". We take a look at songs we've been involved with or songs we've written that perhaps shouldn't have been, or at the least, are best consigned to the bargain bins of history. And we conjure up memories of what routes we could have taken, had music not been our draw. Kev covers more kilometres on his trek along the Camino, Steve brings the spirit of the Naked Juggler back, and the Bishop finally gets round - get it? - to bagels.
36 minutes | Mar 12, 2021
Episode #58 - Fishing for cheeses in East Anglia
Life in a rock'n'roll band being explored diligently and dutifully here, with Steve Bonham's memories of fishing for cheeses - or something like that, you'll have to listen for yourself to try to work it out - in East Anglia; Kev Moore takes us on his next steps along the Camino trail and Chris 'the Bishop' Lydon talks about failing to boil an egg.
35 minutes | Mar 5, 2021
Episode #57 - Hornèd men and big tin breastplates
You'll just have to listen to the episode to see where the hornèd men and those big tin breastplates fit in, I'm afraid. Perhaps Kev surprises us on his latest Camino journal entry with people he befriends? Or perhaps Steve is out looking for such characters for a new opera? Or maybe Chris The Bishop Lydon finds these folk as assistants for his latest culinary quandry. Only one way to find out!
35 minutes | Feb 26, 2021
Episode #56 - Nipples are SO last week
Join The Long Road team for a chat looking back at our earliest musical memories and the first albums/singles we remember listening to or buying. We get the next entry in Kev's Camino Trek journal and Steve is on the search for an extraordinary story of ordinary folk to tell.
38 minutes | Feb 19, 2021
Episode #55 - Nipples bouncing in time to the beat of the tuba
Continuing our recent streak of slightly bonkers trio chats, join Steve Bonham, Kev Moore and Chris 'the Bishop' Lydon for some chats about where in the world we'd love to play - and the breaches of reality that occur therein! Kev takes us on more steps along his camino, reflecting on the words that nature and travel inspire. Steve talks about Life on Mars, the places - the other worlds - that music can take you.
38 minutes | Feb 12, 2021
Episode #54 - Kev'll sign your breast or chest!
A slightly more in control, but still a little bit bonkers, chat betwixt our three Long Roaders - Steve Bonham, Kev Moore and Chris 'the Bishop' Lydon - this time discussing the rituals and riders we've come across in our careers; either our own little things we do to get grounded before a gig or the demands musicians make backstage! Kev takes on the next stage of his Camino trek, and Steve shares thoughts on composing in the open air.
39 minutes | Feb 5, 2021
Episode #53 - Painting elephants
Hop on board with The Long Road this week, but brace yourselves! For the first five minutes of the show, we've absolutely lost our minds and barely a coherent thought enters the audiosphere. We rally though, and get on to discussing today's topic: stories and why they matter. And then we lose it again. Quite the journey! Kev Moore brings us another slice of his Camino trek pie and Steve Bonham shares the next entry in his Songs About The Road journal.
37 minutes | Jan 29, 2021
Episode #52 - 15 songs. 15 months. One incredible journey.
I was sorely tempted to name this episode "POST-ORGASMIC BLISS!", for reasons that become quickly apparent as you listen to the episode, but I decided against it ultimately. Join The Long Road's lockdown-fuelled, anarchic podcast chat celebrating the release of our latest 15-song album, American Wilderness Odyssey, and its companion book - a full-colour guide to the stories behind the songs, the characters we met on our travels and the inside track on The Long Road themselves.

Episode #51 - Set your sights on the horizon
Once more, we join The Long Road as they discuss plans for 2021 - and the message they hope everyone around the world can spread as we journey through the wastelands left by 2020, and into the future. Steve Bonham asks "Why America Matters", at this time of great change in the USA. Kev Moore continues his trek along the Camino trail and stops for a night of wild camping. The Bishop brings tell of rituals in the kitchen, special moments to be savoured.
35 minutes | Jan 15, 2021
Episode #50 - All those songs about the road
Quite by accident we've reached Episode 50 of the podcast so in celebration of this fact we thought we'd do a perfectly standard episode. Boom. The first threeway chat of the year between Steve Bonham, Kev Moore and The Bishop. Steve takes us time travelling with a trip to his past, exploring in his attic. Kev takes us once again back to his trip in autumn last year, doing the Camino trail in northern spain. And The Bishop brings us part two of his chocolate adventures.
40 minutes | Jan 8, 2021
Episode #49 - Dreams are only the plans of the reasonable
Season 4 of The Vagabond Way Podcast kicks off with the launch of The Long Road's latest single: Western Requiem. In these continuing turbulent times, Steve Bonham reflects on who we are, rather than who we appear to be. Kev Moore takes us on the next stage of his Camino Trek Journal. And The Bish introduces us to his secret Christmas project of homemade chocolate bonbons!
31 minutes | Dec 25, 2020
Episode #48 - Festive garlic balls and delicious pre-pricked crumpets
Having just missed Rudolph paying Vagabond HQ a fleeting visit, you join The Long Road (Steve Bonham, Kev Moore and Chris 'The Bish' Lydon) as they take stock of 2020 and look forward to 2021. Brace yourselves for some of the most loopy chit-chat we've ever published! Best festive wishes to all our Podcast Listener friends around the world!
