Johnny Harper is a superb guitarist who backed Maria Muldaur among others.
He’s put together a band, Johnny Harper and Carnival, and they’re covering songs by The Band.
Check out these videos. The performances are very good. These guys know what they’re doing.
Recorded live March 2014 at Avonova in Oakland.
The way the voices work together in these songs is wonderful.
