Going Home: The Tour LIVE is a 2-disc chronicle of Mikey’s story, a finding-myself journey with a homespun twist and just a dab of apple butter. “It all began on Gran’s front porch, with she of the great white rocking chair and I of the little wooden steps…”
An ebb and flow of songs and stories from author Mary Batson and singer-songwriter Bob Sima about what really matters… finding your way home.
“In words and music Bob & Mary remind us why we need to just slow down and pay better attention to what really matters… At the end of the show, we found ourselves more firmly planted to this earth but somehow more willing to look to the sky.” -- Fred Munroe, House Concert Host, Atascadero, CA
“Bob’s unforgettable melodies… Mary’s heartwarming story of going home… a powerfully moving combination…” -- Julie Souza, Concert Host, San Luis Obispo, CA
“We really enjoyed the show. The combination of the readings and the songs were beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing your journey with us. I had an amazing Gramma too… She didn''t ‘speak’ her wisdom as much as yours seems to have, but her non-verbal communication and body language was just as profound. Thank you for bringing those memories back to me.” -- Ellen Sosinski, MD
“GOING HOME is filled with Gran''s ‘more precious than gold’ insights written to her granddaughter. Mikey is an inspiration to us all! A must read!” -- Jacquelyn Hodge, Carthage, MO
“The show was AMAZING!!! You two are an incredibly magical pair, you moved the whole audience. You both are wonderful to watch and listen to. The story, the music, the topic of going home... It strikes me as a combo of Little House on the Prairie, Winnie the Pooh, and a little Cosmos!” -- Cece Anna Lee, Jujuberry Oracle, Baltimore, MD
“In a world where sorrow is plenty and a part of being human, so is love and kindness and the simple joy of looking into another''s eyes, knowing no harm will come to you here... Listen to Mary''s spoken word and Bob''s soothing lyrics... no harm will come to you here.” -- Connie Aldrich, Baltimore, MD
“Watching the two of you completely changed my mood! I was tappin’ my foot with a grin on my mug long before it ended. Can''t thank you both enough for getting me out of the dumps… Going Home stirs old memories, and each re-read brings back even more long forgotten experiences. Thanks for allowing my lazy brain to see something different…” -- Richard Lemons, Kansas City, MO
“The performance Saturday is so treasured and was so very memorable. I felt blessed to be a part of such a wonderful event. After a month, I still experience peace within myself when thinking of that memorable afternoon.” -- Carole Jones, MD
“The joy that Mary had in spending time with the characters of Mikey and Gran and getting to know them and their stories is clear in Going Home. I can see the three of them sitting on Gran''s porch together or walking through the woods together in the knowing of their shared home and in the wonder of the time they get to spend together. The ache of Mikey''s loss of connection to that feeling of home as an adult is palpable in the story and yet there is Gran with her quiet wisdom to help guide her truly back home. Going Home is a beautiful weaving of grief and rediscovery that touches my heart and reminds me of home.” -- Lynda Allen, Author – Rest in the Knowing, Fredericksburg, VA
“Mary and Bob remind us that the best things in life are simple and pure. They warm our hearts and enliven our spirits. Each one separately soothes the soul, but together they create something that cannot be described in words. The experience is simply divine.” -- Sara Trimm, Colton, NY
