Johnny Johnston has been singing and playing the blues in bars, restaurants and juke joints across America for the past 25 years. In the 1980's, he honed his blues slide guitar style as a solo performer in southern Georgia and northern Florida. In the 90's, he moved to the west coast and played electric slide guitar in blues bands in San Francisco and along the north and central coast of California. These days, Johnny Johnston regularly performs solo blues and blues inspired originals. Fort Collins' own Johnny Johnston brings his hot fingerpickin', slide guitar and vocals to Colorado music venues. Colorado residents no longer have to drive to Mississippi or New Orleans to enjoy real down home blues - Johnny Johnston delivers!!
