Deering Live - Mark Johnson

by David Bandrowski

We're excited to feature Mark Johnson, the father of Clawgrass banjo playing on Deering Live! If you aren't familiar with what Clawgrass is, it is a unique way of playing clawhammer banjo that utilizes "rolls" similar to the 3 finger style.  Mark's unique style doesn't really fit into a strict category. It's very bluegrass but has overtones of traditional folk, progressive acoustic, new-grass and old-time all mixed into one. This is a great chance to learn from a true master of the instrument.

Mark Johnson is an Extraordinary talent and his music is authentic. The sound speaks for itself.” - TONY RICE
