Johnny High-Hat

Johnny High-Hat has done a lot of things as an artist: played in bluegrass, country, and swing bands, mandolin orchestras and a circus pit band; studied at Bertolt Brecht's Berliner Ensemble; and co-founded and ran the acclaimed Fern Street Circus for many years in San Diego.

After 30 years as a sideman, this mandolin-playing circus impresario has stepped out on his own to tackle everything from well-known standards to vintage country, and lesser known Texas swing gems, in a set of songs about hunger, longing, and sadness, change and affirmation. The new CD features the nationally acclaimed roots band The Wiyos on four tracks—adding further musical depth and character. Compelling, contemporary arrangements and a timeless tone.
