A raucous one-man operetta based on legends of American folk music and the early vaudeville stage. A bawdy old folksinger tries to burn the barn down one final time before his last waltz is called. Facing the life he has led and the legacy he will leave behind, he uses every trick he knows to confront his past. Experience an authentic and sometimes troubling American music tradition on five instruments with puppets, dirty jokes, a mask, and a crankie in this heartfelt hootenanny.Developed in a collaboration with writer, performer and “Ozark renaissance folklorist” Willi Carlisle and director Joseph Fletcher, the play is the product of five years of research, down-home poetry, square dances, music-mentorship, and folklore in the mountains of the Arkansas Ozarks.
