The Longest Day of the Year was grown out of the independent mid-west music scene and united in the evening shadows of Colorado's mountains.
They are a team of string strummers, harmonica howlers, drum drummers, and song singers whittling tunes from the gray ceiling of Michigan and the foothills of Boulder, CO. With influences drawn from the American Roots Music tradition, TLDOTY cooks together their vast experience in folk and country, indie-rock, and Canjun/zydeco. They deliver up steaming plates of new-fangled, old-timey, foot-stompy, modern tall tales.
Strong and strange storytelling mixes with unconventional arrangements on traditional country, roots, folk, and rock song structures to bring you their brand of fiery outlaw Americana.
They tangle words with wood, metal, and wire. They bring the sweet and bitter truth, raising hearts and pints.
