The Odyssey consists of 24 short songs sung by Joe Goodkin while playing the acoustic guitar.  The performance is continuous and runs around 30 minutes.   

The Odyssey is especially suited for high school and college classes reading The Odyssey, but can be adapted for audiences of any age with any level of familiarity with the story. 

High school and college classroom performances customarily begin with a 5 minute introduction followed by the 30 minute performance.  An interactive question and answer session follows.

The Odyssey can be performed in any sized venue from classroom to auditorium, up to three times a day.  For larger venues and audiences, a microphone and PA system may be necessary, but Joe generally performs without amplification.  Joe also provides a program so audiences can follow the lyrics or projects the lyrics while he performs.

Performance fees vary based on location and number of performances.  Please email joe (at) for booking information and any questions.
