Larry Long 65th Birthday Celebration and CD Release at Cedar Cultural Center

“The late Johnny Cash coined the phrase “a dove with claws” to describe the fierce pacifism that grew from his first-hand look at America’s endless wars while entertaining soldiers in Vietnam. Cash’s words are a perfect description of the life and work of Larry Long.”  Eddie Allen, Writer & Recording Artist

Join Larry Long in celebration of his 65th orbit around the sun and the release of his new album, Dove with Claws, as he returns to his musical roots at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on Armistice-Veterans Day.  Opening: Annie Humphrey

Larry has joined forces with his cousin, the legendary Melvin James, in his continuing musical battle for peace, justice, and dignity for all people. The claws of Melvin’s guitar sharpen the urgency of Larry’s message in a way that will surprise you. And delight you. And take your breath away.  Learn More
