Campbell Homestead Barnyard Jamboree with Larry Long, Fiddlin’ Pete & Friends

After all these years
I wouldn’t change a thing
Always one more road to travel
One more song sing

Larry Long & Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott have been playing music together for over 40 years. In the early 1970’s they traveled and played music extensively throughout the United States – hitchhiking, hopping freights, and in the mid seventies traveled in the Lone Prairie Schooner and the Red Caboose down the back roads of America.

Since those early days, they’ve both established their own separate remarkable musical careers. From singing with Kris Kristofferson at the Hollywood Bowl, Joan Baez at Pete Seeger’s 90th Birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden, on the California Zephr, to the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC, and the Elko Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Nevada. Their journey is a true American journey!

Though Fiddlin’ Pete and Larry now live thousands of miles apart (Pete in Bishop, California and Larry in the Longfellow Neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota), they continue to get together to play music and celebrate with family and friends.

Larry Long & Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott played at the first ever Barn Dance back in 1977 and they are going to be performing at this years Barnyard Jamboree!

Full Schedule of Campbell Homestead Barnyard Jamboree on August 25th & 26th listed below.

Larry Long Performs In Norway From September 3 – 11, 2017

Larry Long will be performing in Fredrikstad, Norway at a gathering with Rigoberta Menchú. Rigoberta Menchu received the Nobel Peace Prize for dedicating her life to publicizing the rights of Guatemala’s indigenous feminists during and after the Guatemalan Civil War (1960–1996), and to promoting indigenous rights in the country. Other performances between September 3- 11 will include a concert at the International Meeting Point and a cultural-diversity workshop with students at Haugeåsen Middle School. Larry will be singing My Rainbow Race in honor of Pete Seeger at each event. My Rainbow Race by Pete Seeger was sung by over forty-thousand people in Norway at a “rose rally” in response to the murder of seventy-seven innocent people by a far-right extremist in Norway on July 22, 2011.  These performances coincide with the 450th Anniversary of the founding of Fredrikstad in 1567.

My Rainbow Race

One blue sky above us
One ocean lapping all our shore
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more
And because I love you
I’ll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It’s too soon to die.

Some folks want to be like an ostrich,
Bury their heads in the sand.
Some hope that plastic dreams
Can unclench all those greedy hands.
Some hope to take the easy way:
Poisons, bombs. They think we need ’em.
Don’t you know you can’t kill all the unbelievers?
There’s no shortcut to freedom.

One blue sky above us
One ocean lapping all our shore
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more
And because I love you
I’ll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It’s too soon to die.

Go tell, go tell all the little children.
Tell all the mothers and fathers too.
Now’s our last chance to learn to share
What’s been given to me and you.

One blue sky above us
One ocean lapping all our shore
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more
And because I love you
I’ll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It’s too soon to die.
