“There Ain’t No More!” is an award-winning tour-de-folk operetta based on legends of American folk music.

During his last performance, a dying folksinger faces the life he has led, the legacy he will leave behind, and death itself with five instruments, square-dance calls, and enough dirty jokes to make a beaver blush. The medication-addled musician relives lost love, his experience of the Vietnam War, years of political activism, and adventures into the American wilderness in this haunting, heartfelt hootenanny. The Orlando weekly describes it as “A poetic celebration of America's original art form that is simultaneously ancient and avant-garde.”

There Ain’t No More! addresses the faded and sometimes troubling legacy of American folk culture. Developed in a collaboration with “Ozark renaissance folklorist” Willi Carlisle and director Joseph Fletcher, the play is the product of five years of research, down-home poetry, field recordings, music-mentorship, and folklore amidst the misty mountains of the Arkansas Ozarks. Winner 2017 Orlando Fringe “Best Show of the Fringe” and “Patrons Pick”.
