Carl Johnson was born in Roanoke, Virginia and now makes his home in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Johnson is a renowned African-American traditional 3-finger banjo player and singer. In addition to playing with the Rock Creek Bluegrass Band, Johnson is interested in passing along the traditions of the music. JAM Allstars will join him on the stage, including Jonah Graves, a 17- year-old fiddling sensation, who discovered traditional music only two years ago through the Folk School JAM in Murphy, NC.
