johnny lawhorn

The hobo drifter, son of a grifter, Johnny Lawhorn, makes his way through speakeasies and gutters across the underbelly of America. While in Kansas City, Missouri, he forges the bluegrass group, The Pentagram String Band.

With a lineup of banjo, mandolin, stand-up bass, washboard, and hillbilly harmonies, their live shows are intense and lovesick. A tug-of-war between carnage and consequence.

Their first full length album, Buskers’ Boneyard (2019) features Liz Sloan (Urban Pioneers) on fiddle and Ike Goletz (Whiskey for the Lady) on jaw harp.
