Kathy Johnson Trio

The Kathy Johnson Trio's entertaining programs range from heartfelt to hilarious. Kathy, who is known for her beautiful voice, does lead vocals and plays acoustic guitar; Mary Starbuck sings wonderful harmony vocals; and Jim Stone anchors it all on stand-up bass. Their eclectic repertoire includes folk music, originals, old cowboy songs, Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, Hank Williams, funny novelty songs, and much more. Audiences really enjoy Kathy's well-written originals, like "Well-Tanned, Hairy-Chested, Bare-Armed Men," "My New Year's Resolutions," and the inspiring "Follow Your Dreams." The trio has also written some clever parodies based on the popular PBS series "Downton Abbey." Kathy has released four CDs which have all gotten great reviews, and her latest was up for a Grammy for Best Folk Album in 2014.
