Bruce Johnson

Hi! I’m Bruce Johnson and I’ve been working and teaching here at the Homestead Pickin’ Parlor® for about twenty years. It’s a good community to be involved with and I feel fortunate to have been welcomed in.

I’ve been listening to music all my life and have been drawn to acoustic music in particular.

I play a variety of instruments with a personal emphasis on the five string banjo. Seeing Steve Martin with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on Saturday Night Live back in the late 70’s was the spark that lit the fire.

I have performed with several bands over the years and hope to continue to do that.

My wife Adrienne, daughter Magnolia, son Bodhi and I currently reside in St. Paul.
