If you’ve seen Zeke Johnson play around town, you’ll want to come here him again. If you haven’t, you have a new treat in store. He’s a one-of-a-kind story teller. Here’s his own quick guide to his journey in music:
Born in ’43. Musical family. Singing since I was six, on radio at 13. Played trombone from sixth grade through sophomore year in college.
Became a folk music addict in ’63, then a blues addict in ’65, right after I learned guitar. Spark of the addiction? Furry Lewis, the old rascal.
Wrote only a handful of songs until early & 20
13 at age 69; non- stop since then. Go figure. Now recording at MGP studios.
