Latest prudenceanddancc Prudence Johnson Sings Gershwin As part of the Performing Arts Series, the University of Jamestown is hosting Prudence Johnson, singer, writer, and teacher on March 20th at 7:30 p.m. Johnson will be performing in the Reiland Fine Arts Center on the University campus. Prudence Johnson’s long and happy career has landed her on the musical theatre stage, in two feature films, (A River Runs Through It, A Prairie Home Companion) national radio, (several long stints on A Prairie Home Companion) and on concert stages across North America and occasionally Europe (Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, Gorky Park and an old mosque in Israel being the most exciting.) She has released more than a dozen recordings, including albums dedicated to the music of the Gershwins, Hoagy Carmichael, Greg Brown, and a collection of international lullabies. Prudence finds great pleasure in working with young people, serving as a music director at SteppingStone Theatre for Youth Development since ’96 and teaching private lessons.

Dan regularly creates special programs for MN Public Radio and the MN Historical Society which blend storytelling, interview and music. Two of these shows, “Café Europa” (2014, 2008, 2005) and “Mambo Italiano” (2006) have been aired on Twin Cities public television and broadcast statewide on MPR, as have his frequent radio collaborations with Kevin Kling, Ann Reed, Peter Ostroushko and Patricia Hampl.
