Harmonica participant Kirk “Jellyroll” Johnson is quietly maintaining the custom of virtuoso harp using that is passed along by guys such as for example Sonnyboy Williamson and Small Walter. After kicking throughout the Lake Charles and Knoxville, Tennessee areas Johnson ultimately fell right into a regular gig with nation musician Con Hunley in 1979. Since that time he is continuing to grow, together with his popularity, into among the finest harp players on the market. Johnson transferred to Nashville in 1984 and his early program function, playing on Randy Travis’ debut, became a hit, offering several producers the opportunity to hear Johnson’s playing. Since that time he has performed on records with the Judds, Alabama, B.B. Ruler, Shania Twain and Reba McEntire, amongst others.
