Stacks Image 149
Orville Johnson and Mark Graham
The Kings of Mongrel Folk

Premiering Friday, October 29, 2021 at 7PM
and streaming through Monday, November 1, 2021

Orville Johnson is a favorite with Kenyon Hall audiences and we are over the moon that he is back with us AND has brought his oft times musical partner Marc Graham along! Orville, as you know (or will soon see in the streamed event!), is a singer, instrumentalist, songwriter, session player, the top dobro player on the West Coast, and, above all, an instinctive and sensitive musician.

Orville and Mark Graham have played together as a duo since 1993. As Orville says, “Mark is a world class harmonica wizard, a humorous songwriter without peer, a tuneful clarinet blower, and all-round swell guy.”

Together they form the duo – The Kings of Mongrel Folk! They’ve had a lot of fun over the years playing music, writing songs together, traveling the hi ways and byways, festivals and concert halls, and meeting music lovers far and wide. We are delighted to feature them streaming from Kenyon Hall!

Through the generosity of these talented folks, the October From Home series is offered at no cost. We hope, though, that viewers will be moved to donate online during the stream in support of these world class musicians and the programming at Kenyon Hall as the performing arts struggle to come back joyously from the sad silence of the pandemic!

To see the show on October 29th (or set an alert on your calendar!), click here or in the column on the right! Can’t join us on the 29th, don’t worry - You can still click to experience and support these artists through the weekend!
