If you’ve ever wondered if the Amish enjoy non-religious music, the answer is YES! John will sing some of them and share what that's all about. 


In his youth, John took to running with the local Amish and got to know them so well he even learned the language. He speaks (and can sing in) flawless Pennsylvania Dutch. He married Lydia, a Mennonite girl whose parents had been Amish. You’d never know he wasn’t born an Amishman.

Come hear John and his band bring their unique mucial stylings to some select Pennsylvania Dutch songs and to many of your favorite Johnny Cash, country, and gospel tunes. Experience what is sure to be one of the most unique, fun, and informative concerts ever!
