Born and raised in Southern Ohio then drawn to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virgina John Howard has coupled both his knowledge of the Ohio Appalachian lifestyle with the traditions of the Old Dominion to bring us his original brand of Mountain Folk.
John has written and played music for much of his life. With guitar or mandolin in hand and the sustain of harmonica he brings life to lyrics that tend to tell the story of a once drifter. From tongue and cheek to heart-on-his-sleeve prose John brings his love to create and play to every live performance.
You can catch John & his wonderful bunch of buds in and around the Old Dominion and the surrounding states. Keep your eyes open and your ears a buzzin' with updates on John Howard & Shamokin' Mtn, HoboJac, Yankee Dixie and all the other collaborations we find ourselves part of, right here.
