  • Profile

    Inspired by the little-known fact that Mark Twain sang tenor; played banjo, guitar and piano; and loved to show off at parties, Jim Post created an exceptional musical experience about Twain’s childhood.

    In Mark Twain & the Laughing River, the wit and wisdom of American humorist Mark Twain comes alive as Jim Post blends his skills as a storyteller, actor, historian and musician to take you from the adventures of Twain’s youth to his early writing career right up to the point of his first big successes.

    Twain’s humor takes you from dialogue to song, from stories to historical fact, from laughter to nostalgia. Post has written very effective and melodic folk songs that punctuate the stories, truly grasping Twain’s greatness.
