Kootenay Savings Music in the Park - Change: Son of John featuring Jonny P. Johnson

July 5 7:00 to 8:00 pm

TONIGHT - Son of John featuring country-roots singer song writer Johnny P. Johnson on guitar and vocals and Javan Johnson on violin and vocals bring you their soulful country, folk roots sound.

The smooth harmony of two voices blending together so hauntingly perfectly, that's what you get with Son of John, a father-son country/folk music duo from Nelson, BC. With Johnny's lyrics and soulful voice and Javan's instrumentations and rasp, their sound is unlike anything people have ever heard. They discovered something magical happening while they toured Johnny's solo album together. There's something about family and blood that can't be matched. So, Son of John was born as an official duo in 2017. Johnny P. brings his natural vocal talent, creative harmonica and strong rhythm guitar to the pair. His passion for musical storytelling as an avid songwriter is a feature of the Son of John music, writing songs about the simplicities and complexities of life from his experiences and those around him. Javan has been following in his dad's footsteps, dabbling in songwriting too. As a talented multi-instrumentalist, Javan uses his classical training and gifted ear to feature both fiddle and mandolin in many Son of John songs. The bond that they have, not only as father and son, but as true musicians with raw talent sharing the stage with a sound that only family can create, the future is promising for Son of John.
