The Kings of Mongrel Folk rule a musical kingdom known far and wide as Mongrolia Why When Love Has Gone Away - Mark Graham & Orville Johnson - Kings Of Mongrel Folk two of the most talented, zany and widely-respected roots musicians in the United States - both of whom have appeared on Garrison Keilor's Prairie Home Companion - choose to go on the road as a duo? Simple: Mark Graham and Orville Johnson love the magic when they play together as much as their audiences do.
We play on a lot of different emotions. Graham's harmonica virtuosity on Irish and American fiddle tunes and his rich, woody sound on clarinet Nightriders - Eloy - Metromania well-known to fans of Kevin Burke's Open House.
Orville's guitar, dobro, and quavering, honeyed vocals have seasoned more than two hundred recordings, soundtracks and countless TV and radio commercials. He also produces records and teaches at events like the International Guitar Seminar and Pt. Townsend Country Blues Workshop. Though they were longtime acquaintances on the Northwest folk scene, it was at a Folklife Festival jam session in that they hatched their plan to expand their kingdom of mongrel folk nationwide and, yes, even worldwide.
