Jenny Johnson is a powerful Americana singer-songwriter performing her own original songs that pull from bluegrass, jazz, ragtime, folk, and the blues. She performs around the nation with a five piece band as well as performing solo with her soaring voice and acoustic guitar. She’s gearing up to release her third original album this March that tells stories from the small town of Makanda, Illinois as part of her MFA thesis. For more, go to www.therealjennyjohnson.com
