Harmony Hill is pleased to welcome back Singer-Songwriter, John Ford for his fifth season performing on the Hill. John performs a unique mix of American Roots, Traditional Blues and Soulful Classic Rock. Ford is a veteran of the Cincinnati music scene, playing classic rock, punk and alt country in various bands, influenced by everything from classic & college rock to country blues. currently playing a repertoire of self-composed American roots music. “I’ve been writing songs since my early teens” John explains, “Whether it be songs I’ve written or an old song from the 1930’s, I play what I fall in love with. Many times people ask if I’m doing all original music; sometimes I do, depending on the venue, but sometimes it’s just an old Son House song or a new Chris Smither song that people have never heard, that I consider to be great. We are pleased to have John represent our neighborhood as the featured act at The Western Southern Tennis Open in The Lindner Center this Sunday as well.
