Above the hustle-bustle of Eastern Market on a busy weekend afternoon, those were the lyrics I heard cut through a hundred conversations: "...like a mountain stream."
I can't think of a better way to describe Steve Long's voice than to say it is, indeed, like a mountain stream. Fluid and flowing, peaceful at times, rocky at others.
He's at Eastern Market in D.C. every weekend, providing a perfect soundtrack for sunny afternoons. His version of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" is unlike any I've heard. Mr. Long took a classic that everyone knows and made it his own.
If you happen to be in D.C. on a weekend, drop by Eastern Market and look (and listen) for Steve Long.
