performed at major festivals, clubs, coffeehouses, and more across the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and Europe, have performed live on Oscar Brand’s
radio show, France Bleu radio and appeared on French TV.
The Johnson Girls is an energetic all-woman a cappella ensemble, performing traditional and contemporary music with an emphasis on songs of the sea and shore.

wherever they go.
“The Johnson Girls, shanty singers from America, took the place by storm….Those who thought a shanty singer had to be male, bearded and with a beer gut, had
better think again.” – Cornwall Guardian
Each of The Johnson Girls brings a specialty and style to the ensemble. Their extensive repertoire includes songs with an Afro-Caribbean influence, of the
inland waterways, of fishing, mining, Irish, Anglo-American, Italian, French, and Canadian ballads and work songs, and much more. The Johnson Girls bring a
unique interpretation to their repertoire while preserving the traditional roots of their music.
Whether leading a sing-along aboard the Peking at South Street Seaport in New York or firing up a festival stage, this group is a winner.” – Craig Edwards –
Festival Director, Mystic Seaport Museum
