Many fine musical stylings to choose from.
Hobos have a long history of music. Whether it's a harmonica sing-along at the hobo camp, or a more formal arrangement in a parish house or bar, hobo song and story is delightful to listen to and share. Often a Hobo song tells of a "glamourous" life on the road, or a jungle camp dream of a better existence.
