Sailing from Iowa
Paul and Linda Johnson brought their children east from New Hartford IA to tour American history at Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. They always wanted to sail, which they did splendidly on a brisk day along the York River where everyone got a turn at the helm. In their spare time, the family performs as The Johnson Strings, playing 75 to 100 musical concerts a year at festivals, colleges, fairs and churches across the upper Midwest. The children are trained on bass, mandolin, violin, viola, cello and piano. They have also played meeting halls for presidential candidates who campaign every four years in Iowa for the Straw Poll.
