The Johnson Girls, an energetic, all-woman a cappella folk music group whose emphasis is maritime music, will help us welcome in the spring.
The Johnson Girls, formed in 1997 at the close of the annual Sea Music Festival at Mystic Seaport, are unique in that they have burst through the barrier of a previously male-dominated musical genre.
Each member of the group brings a specialty and style to the ensemble, including songs with Afro-Caribbean influence, songs of the inland waterways and fishing, along with Irish, Scottish, American, English, Italian and French ballads and work songs.
The group's music is infused with vitality and gorgeous harmonies and encourages plenty of singing from the audience. This will be their third appearance at the Branford Folk Coffeehouse.
