Stage Left Open Mic – Ken Johnson featured performer in March

Ken Johnson’s unique mix of soaring vocals and folk/rock guitar stylings have made him a
popular performer throughout the Midwest. He loves the music he grew up with: 60s and 70s
pop/folk/rock — but also mixes in material from a variety of contemporary artists. His ability
to deliver a song in an intimate and powerful way makes him a popular performer at concerts,
weddings, church services, and any event where music is a focal point.

Ken pioneered the use of computer technology in music education and participated in the consultation and implementation phases of music technology programs for thousands of
schools K-20 throughout North America. His work designing keyboard and guitar labs for VH1 Save the Music was groundbreaking. He now works as a performer and voice teacher, making his home in Woodstock, Illinois.

Here’s a sample of Ken’s music, Dance With My Father. We know you’ll want to hear more!
