The “Traveling Front Porch” is an idea, a dream, even a plan, soon to be a project, but currently a pile of rudimentary sketches and a sizable heap of building materials, all over a hundred years old, waiting in my barn. In time, perhaps by next spring, all of these things will take form as a simple stage, built on a trailer frame, designed to look like a comfortable and friendly, old-timey front porch. I intend to haul the Traveling Front Porch behind my car to anywhere that seems right, tune up my fiddle and guitar, kick back in a comfy porch rocker and play tunes all day.

In the meantime…there are other adventures to be had, projects to be completed and enjoyed, stories to be told and tunes to be played. Stay tuned!

Clive’s guitar is a wonderful story, very well written and told. What a treasure.

I also loved the story of Clive's guitar they need a chance to sing and good luthiers and repairs make it possible

That's really a cool idea, JoeBob...wishing you great fun and success with that.

There's these guys in Kentucky that call themselves "The Moron Brothers," who travel around on a little shanty style boat and play on its porch along the river...good guitar and banjo picker and they make up funny songs...I think they have quite a few youtubes too.

An acquaintance performed with another guy. He went to northern Indiana and had a custom RV built. One side of the trailer "dropped" down and became an extension of the trailer floor. The awning was large enough to cover the extension. Everything was pre - wired for mic's and amps. Often that RV stage was better the the provided stage area.
I heard bands started to rent this RV stage.
