With six incredibly talented, professionally trained musicians, The Johnson Strings family show has something for everyone. Whether you come to see the regular show or their special Branson Christmas show, this family knows how to entertain as they continually offer a wide variety of music genres, vocal pieces, and play over 20 instruments live on stage with passion and precision!

Before bringing their music and talent to Branson, The Johnson Strings spent their time touring across the United States, performing in a variety of venues for a variety of audiences. Each of the six kids in The Johnson Strings family began taking music lessons as children and spent hours practicing every day as they moved forward in their musical journey.

Now performing on stage in Branson, it’s obvious this close-knit family enjoys putting on shows together as they create an unforgettable experience with every production –  and just wait until you see what they can do with their instruments!
