Four international songwriters create a captivating  roadshow of differing folk genres touring throughout Europe.

Once upon a time live roadshows were a staple of the music industry with the likes of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Buddy Holly setting out on the road together. Community halls and theaters filled as each act preformed only a handful of songs with a quick changeover time followed by the musicians banding together for the finale o!ering a diverse and exciting show to the audience.
For years friends Olaf Caarls (Long Conversations) and Benjamin James Caldwell (Broken Down Suitcase) pondered the possibility of reviving this concept with other folk artists and taking it to various venues across Europe. Finally the stars aligned with the interest and subsequent addition of Canadian pop folk artist Dominique Fricot and the brilliant up and coming Dutch songwriter Pieter Van Vliet (Port of Call) with all on board the planning commenced for a rigorous tour across the continent.It has been said to look forward one must look backward, too often modern artists get caught up ithe competition of trying to “make it” and forget about the joy, inspiration camaraderie that playing music as equals can o!er. This is the focus of this roadshow, to bring an old time approach to new music.
