Music on the Porch: Carl Johnson & Friends, Monday, June 2 at 5:30 pm
Join us on the porch to hear bluegrass banjo player Carl Johnson, who raises Tennessee Walking Horses near Nashville, and friends including old-time fiddle and banjo player Joseph Decosimo of Durham, North Carolina as well as guitar and two-finger banjo player Jim Lloyd of Rural Retreat, Virginia.
Jim is the proprietor of Lloyd’s Barber Shop, a local gathering spot for collecting and trading tunes, stories, and songs. Carl and Jim have performed together at the Black Banjo and Fiddle Gathering in Boone, North Carolina, among other venues. This event is made possible with support from the Black & Global Banjo Roots project and the National Endowment for the Arts.
