Violinist/Fiddler Ed Caner has been labeled by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as, "One of the most versatile musicians on the planet." During the past 15 years, he has performed as a sideman for over 50 major acts. Joining Ed this month is singer, guitarist, and songwriter Kathy Johnson, performing her own originals, folk, vintage country, cowboy songs, and popular standards. Her programs combine interesting material, witty commentary, and a fun straightforward style. Kathy has recorded three CDs which received enthusiastic reviews from critics and fans. For over 25 years, she has sung at festivals and clubs in the Eastern U.S., Nashville, and Canada and has performed 12 years at First Night Akron. She is in the Ohio Arts Council's Performing Arts on Tour program and is on the Artist Roster of the Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. In 2007, Kathy was selected as a semi-finalist in the NewSong Academy Songwriting Contest and her song, "Way Out West," was the honored first track on the compilation Folk Train 2001 CD, which featured 24 musicians from the U.S., Canada, and England.
