Michael Perry and the Long Beds Return to The Stoughton Opera House

April 18 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Thursday, April 18th, 2024, on the first night of a 3-day tour, Wisconsin’s favorite bestselling humorist and author Michael Perry returns to The Stoughton Opera House with his band the Long Beds for a night of music punctuated by storytelling and laughter (as featured on the recent PBS special Michael Perry: On the Road, some which was filmed at The Stoughton Opera House). Perry’s song lyrics parallel his prose–sometimes poetic, sometimes rough-hewn, and driven by the natural rhythm of his blue-collar background. “I was raised by farmers and preachers and tough country women, and I suppose my songs reflect that,” says Perry. “Then again, certain wisdoms are available only from whistlers, frauds, and sinners, so I try to slide them a line or two as well.” Expect a set list of solid favorites and a handful of new ones. And if you haven’t seen Perry’s band, you’re in for a treat–it’s an all-pro crew that can hold it down or rip it up.

Perry has co-written or collaborated with musicians including Phil Cook, Justin Vernon, Sean Carey, Mary Cutrufello, and Grammy-nominated jazz pianist Geoffrey Keezer.
