KENYON HALL PRESENTS ORVILLE JOHNSON: Online tonight, presented by historic Kenyon Hall:
At 7:45, we’re delighted to present West Seattle guitar legend Orville Johnson.
Orville acquired his love of singing as a youth in the southern Illinois fundamentalist Pentecostal church he attended. When he later began playing guitar and dobro, he responded to the roots music that surrounded him by learning to play the blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, and country music, now all part of the mosaic that characterizes his own mongrel music. He’s a singer, instrumentalist, record producer, songwriter, session player, teacher, the top dobro player on the West Coast, and, above all, an instinctive and sensitive musician.
To attend Orville’s concert Saturday, please click on this link. The concert is free, and there’s a link included in case you’re able and moved to donate. Orville and Kenyon Hall will share your largesse, for which we’re very grateful.
If you’re unable to attend (tonight), you can still use the same link for future viewings.
