Jon Hogan has been a full-time folk musician for almost twenty years. He grew up in the American West, immersed from childhood in traditional American mountain, gospel and country music. At age 14 he was playing guitar at bluegrass gigs near Salt Lake City, UT. By 20 he was writing songs and studying old-time mountain music in earnest. Over the past two decades he’s written hundreds of original ballads, love songs, and waltzes rooted in his love of traditional music. He’s also become an engaging speaker on the history of mountain music, helping listeners understand the difference between old-time music and bluegrass, and illustrating old-time’s connection to modern popular genres.
