Music: Bobby Long

Long before his first album, Bobby Long acquired a following due to his friendship with a certain sparkling vampire and writing a song for one very popular soundtrack. Soon after, he released A Winter Tale. The album earned quite a few Folk generalizations due to its acoustic styling. That was pretty unfair to the thoughtful lyrics and intricate picking of the plaid-clad lad from England.

Remember: If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it might actually be a Canadian Goose. 

A Winter Tale was beautiful and incredibly Bluesy. The fans he had ate it up and new listeners soon gathered in front of the awkward, shoe-staring singer as well.

Two years later, he’s offered up something new for our consideration.

Bobby Long performs 8 p.m .Friday, April 5 at 20th Century Theater in Oakley with guest Michael Bernard Fitzgerald. $15. the20thcenturytheatre.com.
