Brave is the word I kept thinking of while reading Highway Cello because this book is full of Kenneth’s fears — how he overcomes them or side-steps them or makes peace with them. There are no missed opportunities here.
Along the way, Kenneth is funny and playful — “breathtakingly beautiful” landscapes become “it’s actually the climb and the altitude that are doing most of the breath-taking” (p15).
He also learns that life offers all of us a thousand choices. “…what is the meaning and what are the limits of my ability to decide what I’m going to do next” (p293)? He probes the nature of his choices and seems startled by where a “Yes!” here or there can lead. He ends up deciding that the journey is all there is and that what matters most is intention: “How quickly little plans can grow” (p24).
Highway Cello finally begs you to ask yourself: What am I not doing that I could be doing? What adventures am I not taking? What risks seem too overwhelming? What fears am I cradling? What excuses am I using?

Highway Cello reads like a warm conversation over a nice cup of tea with your best friend!
Kenneth cleverly recounts his tale of adventure and busking. Yet the bicycle ride and music are only components to the “work of art” that is his journey.
Really a fun thought provoking read that will have you chuckling out loud along the way.

This is a true great experience, pushing limits and boundaries, gathering people around music, joy, sharing life experience in a very simple and harmonious way. It has been a real pleasure to welcome Kenneth at my place, organizing and attending a beautiful cello performance in a sunny garden. Thanks so much for your passion!
I really recommend this book, well written that will allow you to immerse yourself in this great musical road-trip experience!
