Dowd formed a band in the 1970s named The Jokers, which included Johnny (guitar), his sister Jennifer Edmondson (drums) and Dave Hinkle (bass).[3] By 1988, the band had become Neon Baptist, who in addition to Dowd included Cally Arthur, Dave Hinkle, Mike Edmondson and Jennifer Edmondson, with Max Ormond and Kim Sherwood-Caso joining the band in later lineups.[4] Neon Baptist was one of the founding acts of the GrassRoots Festival, where Dowd has performed annually since 1991. -Wikipedia

The first in a series of interviews covering the 25th anniversary of the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance, starting off with one of the artists who was there at the beginning.

A consummate poet, and a man both ahead of his time and perpetually in sync with the moment, his music stands out as unique in the annual event, at which he has performed almost every year since its inception; Johnny Dowd is a local treasure. It was an honor and pleasure to sit down and talk to him about what the Festival has meant over the years, as well as what he’s got going on with the release of his latest album, “That’s Your Wife on the Back of My Horse”. -Fingerlakes Music Press
