Harry Johnson is my father -- he passed away on August 1st. A champion/master fiddler -- the $20 2-CD set is really worth the money, which is available via WOTFA & all proceeds benefit documenting of oldtime fiddlers' biographies & music. Thanks.
Harry Johnson's 2-cd set is an absolutely great collection, and worth the money. It was put together from 3 or 4 self-produced cassette productions that he recorded with various backup personnel, and was re-issued from the original master tapes. I think it's a great value, and a memento of a unique Norwegian-American style fiddler, originally from North Dakota. Along with three other fiddlers he represented the Northwest at the Smithsonian Festival in 1976. A couple of years ago we posted a sample of his more recent playing on YouTube - another waltz, Waltzing in San Antone.
Thanks, Vivian. Your compliments mean a GREAT deal as you're quite an accomplished fiddler yourself :) Although I haven't had an opportunity to listen to it yet, I did find a tape of you & your sister, "Twin Sisters" that I'm eager to play. Diane -- Harry's youngest daughter
Actually, the other fiddler on the Twin Sisters CD is not my sister -- she's Barbara Lamb, who was my student back eons ago when we recorded it. We used the "twin sisters" name as a gimmick - we played the tune Twin Sisters, we were doing twin fiddling, and on the original LP cover we had a picture of the Twin Sisters mountains and the Twin Sisters Grange Hall!
