North Carolina Storyteller Profile
|Bio:||Storyteller Johnny Thomas Fowler is an award winning harmonica and banjo champion, author, and co-host of This Old Porch on North Carolina Public Radio WNCW 88.7. His grandparents were from the hills and hollers of the southern Appalachian Mountains. His outstanding programs are reflections of these ties. |
On the stage his presentations are a blast of creative energy weaving family lore, tall tells, legends, and ghost stories with outrageous humor, quick wit and colorful exaggerations. His captivating storytelling is warm and crafty with a personal touch of struggle, heart strings, simple awkwardness, and hilarious adventures. At times he mixes an array of mountain folk tunes, ballads and songs for a special blend of authenticity.
