MICHAEL JOHNATHON

Michael JohnathonFolksinger Michael Johnathon has a long-standing career in acoustic arts. He’s a songwriter, playwright, composer of the opera Woody: For the People, and host of the live audience broadcast of the WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour. His show has an audience with over two million listeners each week on 500 public radio stations, public television coast-to-coast, and American Forces Radio Network in 173 nations.

Growing up in New York, Michael Johnathon was Pete Seeger’s neighbor. Now settled in the foothills of Appalachia, the Kentucky-based songwriter is a prolific artist with ten released albums, two published books and several national projects. His play Walden: The Ballad of Thoreau has been performed over 8,000 times in 42 countries. A tree-hugger at heart, he has performed 2,000 Earth Concerts at schools and colleges, as well as benefits for the homeless, farm families, and shelters helping battered women and children. Billboard Magazine headlined him as an “UnSung Hero.” He has been featured on CNN, TNN, CMT, AP, Headline News, NPR, Bravo and the BBC.

Recently, Michael helped organize the national WoodSongs Front Porch Association to help organize rural and community music and a massive educational program. Members of the WFPA are called “SongFarmers,” which is also the title of his latest album, the very first national CD release to be completely recorded on an iPhone.

The Martin Guitar Company recently introduced the Michael Johnathon signature model 0000-28s “WoodSongs Quad” guitar.
