February 16, 2014: The Johnson Girls

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!
