The Johnson Girls
The Johnson Girls is an energetic all-woman a cappella
ensemble, performing traditional and contemporary
music with an emphasis on songs of the sea
and shore. With a sound that has been called "exciting,"
"haunting,v and "uplifting," the Johnson Girls
give powerhouse performances that bring audiences
to their feet wherever they go.
Widely acclaimed for their rousing work songs,
haunting ballads and laments, and hair-raising harmonies,
The Johnson Girls have performed at major
festivals, clubs and coffeehouses across the United
States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and Europe. They
have performed live on Oscar Brand's radio show
and France Bleu radio as well as appearing on French
TV. Their audiences become part of the show, singing
along with many of the songs.
The Cornwall Guardian says, "The Johnson Girls took the place by storm . . . Those who thought a shanty
singer had to be male, bearded and with a beer gut, had better think again." Don’t miss this exciting group's
first appearance in Woods Hole!
