Larry Long & Fiddlin’ Pete Reunite @ WoodyFest July 10 – 14

When Larry Long & Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott were in their 20s, they lived the life of Woody – hitchhiking, hopping freight trains, & passing the hat from bar to bar across the western states playing & writing songs for the people.

Larry went on to write & perform hundreds of ballads giving voice to struggling farmers, embattled workers, & veterans for decades. He assembled the first hometown tribute to Woody Guthrie in Okemah, Oklahoma in 1989.

Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott has his own brand of high energy traditionally based music. Pete sings ballads of the people & places he’s experienced along the way.

Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott & Larry Long’s performances at WoodyFest will be a reunion of these two old friends & great musicians.

Larry & Fiddlin’ Pete reunite on Thursday, July 11th at 11:00am at the Crystal Theatre in Okemah, Oklahoma for WoodyFest July 10 – 14.   For Tickets: woodyfest.com/tickets
