Ken and Linda Johnson

The Singing Sweethearts

When Ken and Linda got together 21 years ago they discovered that they had a synergy in their singing. They began performing at Bluegrass festivals and were very well received. While being introduced in Castlegar, BC the M.C. gave them the name The Singing Sweethearts. the name stuck and has been their title ever since.

They have been members of the Opry since its inception and play well off each other on stage creating a positive and up beat energy which transmits to the audience.

After many requests from Opry fans they have just completed a CD of fourteen songs, nine of which were penned by Ken.
