About this Artist

PRUDENCE JOHNSON's 25-year career in music has taken her from nightclubs and honky-tonks to Carnegie Hall, from the theater stage to the silver screen (Robert Redford's A River Runs Through It), from the Midwest to the Middle East. Her ten album releases include Little Dreamer, a collection of international lullabies; Moon Country, which features the music of Hoagy Carmichael; and S'Gershwin, a collaboration with pianist Dan Chouinard.

She recently collaborated with four Minnesota composers to create A Girl Named Vincent, a presentation of the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay set to music, to be released on CD in 2005. She is a 2001 recipient of the McKnight Artists Fellowship for Performing Musicians and enjoys a steady schedule of concert appearances across the country.
