Eric Long performs classic easy-going Americana music that's great for weddings, house concerts, corporate events, festivals, celebrations and everything in between. He's opened for Grammy winners in Blues & Country music, and NPR hailed his voice as carrying a “…timeless timbre that sounds well-traveled, self-reflective and pure.”
Eric has a large catalogue of classic and recognizable covers as well as original music that he's performed around the world. Providing entertainment for major corporate clients/brands down to intimate weddings and parties, Eric can be a fly on a wall creating laid back acoustic music, or the upbeat act to get your event going. Ensembles available by request.
Eric delivered a great performance and easy to work with!
Truly, don’t wait another moment to book Eric for next gathering. He provided just the right vibe for our backyard wedding and his music is awesome. On top of it all, he was so communicative and helpful in the planning process. Next level!
Eric came to our rescue when changing wedding plans multiple times in a pandemic. We simply wanted a live musician to play for us some of our favorite songs as we walked down and up the aisle of our special day and he was such a pleasure to work with! He learned a specific arrangement I had sent him for the big day and my husband and I just couldn't be happier with the way every detail played out. Would highly recommend!! Cannot wait to see him playing his own music around town soon!
Eric was a joy to work with!!! He was quick to respond and flexible, which is necessary right now. I hired him for my small backyard wedding. He was easy to talk with and made the whole process very easy. His music is great! Highly recommend him for any event!

Response from Eric Long:
Eric was just a treat to work with! He showed up right on time, set up and provided the perfect acoustics for our party. Honestly if I had my druthers this would have been a show where we could just listen to his songs! He is super talented- original music that is uplifting and comforting. He also sang a special song for my mom that she loves...I doubt he will be available for this kind of entertainment long...

Eric is first and foremost an incredibly talented individual and we were so fortunate to have him as part of our wedding. Eric took time to get to know us in advance of the wedding to ensure he would be able add exactly what we were looking for to our big day. Our guest were so impressed with his perforamance. We only wish we would have booked him for a longer period of time.

It was an absolute pleasure playing for you. Thanks so much for allowing me to play a part in your wedding. Wishing you the happiest of days!
Eric is a fabulous guitarist! He has helped us out at multiple corporate events and has been adored by our guests. He's a pleasure to work with and we look forward to each opportunity we have to hire him!
Eric was absolutely incredible! He played guitar and sang for our wedding happy hour, and it completely gave that portion of our wedding the vibe we wanted — romantic yet fun, entertaining yet soft. His voice is truly one of a kind, and still to this day, people tell us how much they enjoyed him! He is also very kind, easy to work with, and accommodating. I feel so grateful to have had him at our wedding, and know you will, too. He is above and beyond :)

What to Expect
I can play instrumental acoustic background music or singalong favorites from roots and folk music to blues and rock and roll. Depending on your needs I can provide upbeat sets, but my specialty is laid back Americana that is perfect for cocktail hours & events of all size.
Singer-songwriter Eric Long’s music is fundamentally folk, with deep ties to early country, roots and blues music. His songs pull from the same cloth as Jerry Jeff Walker, John Hartford and Jimmy Buffet alike: sometimes funny, often rich with depth, and always entertaining. NPR’s All Songs Considered has hailed his voice as carrying a “timeless timbre that sounds well traveled, self-reflective and pure,” while Relix called his last LP “easy to listen to and easy to love.”
"His work resides at the heart of what Woody Guthrie was talking about when he asked and answered whose land this is. By listening to him, one gets the sense that he knows you, that he’s heard your stories and felt your struggles and understands your highs and your lows. He, like so much else, was made to be shared, made to be cherished, made for you and me." - For the Folks
Eric has opened for Grammy winning roots artist Fantastic Negrito as well as acoustic and country music greats Doug MacLeod, Guy Davis and Josh Turner.
