Celebrating Ron Johnson at Barberville

Ron Johnson, a Florida singer-songwriter, author, journalist and president of the North Florida Folk Network passed away earlier this month and is sincerely missed by all.

On Saturday, November 1, 2014 there will be a Musical Celebration for Ron at Barberville Pioneer Settlement in Barberville, FL. The Barberville Fall Jamboree takes place during this weekend. The coordinators ofthe Fall Jamboree have generously allowed us to plan Ron’s celebration at theend of the first day of the festival. The Musical Celebration will take place at the Depot Stage from 5 – 6 pm. It will be an informal song circle in honor of Ron. There are bleachers at this stage where audience members can sit and enjoy the musical tribute, and there will be an opportunity for musician friends to share some songs.

Find information on the Barberville Fall Jamboree and Pioneer Settlement including a map and directions here: If you have questions about this celebration, please message Bill Perras on Facebook. He has graciously volunteered to coordinate the song circle.

This Celebration is open to everyone.  We look forward to seeing you there.
