Keith Richardson has been recording my shows for more than 15 years. He has spent a year listening through the material and curating this collection. From eighty favorites we've selected 32 songs, 3 poems and some stories that capture the journey. I covered a whole lot of miles in these years but the real journey has always been about traveling in. These songs chart that course. Can't wait to share them with you!

    My writing guitar! 2004 Taylor 814-CE This has been my writing guitar for over a decade and has played a role in the creation of many of the tracks on How Many Miles.

Fully insured shipping is included in the cost. Includes hardshell guitar case covered with bumper stickers.
