Mike Johnson's

7 May 2005, Mike Johnson performs his most popular yodeling song at Bart Plantenga's yodel book lecture at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York, sharing the stage with Yodelers Randy Erwin and Lynn Book. Erwin is the yodeling voice in Disney's animated movie "HOME ON THE RANGE." Plantenga is a DJ, music historian and author of the 2004 best seller "Yodel-Ay-Eee-Ooo, The Secret History of Yodeling Around The World." This is Johnson's first official appearance following his November 2003 spinal cord injury when three of his neck vertebrae collapsed. His song "Yeah I'm A Cowboy" is on Plantenga's "Rough Guide To Yodel" CD along with the songs of 17 other world famous Yodelers. The CD was released in September 2006 by the World Music Network in London-UK, and is available from Amazon.com and numerous Internet sites. The video of this entire Bart Plantenga Yodel show is available from Roughshod Records. http://www.freewebs.com/blackyodelno1/roughshodrecordsstore.htm Bart Plantenga at http://www.bartplantenga.com Mike wrote the "T-Shirt Yodel" back in June 1988 in response to the many comments he was getting about his official T-Shirt which reads "Mike Johnson Black Yodel No.1, Country Music's No.1 Black Yodeler." Even after reading this someone would invariably ask him "Do you really yodel?" Johnson has written more yodeling songs than anyone, and his Yodel Song Archives, containing 114 yodeling songs written & composed by him, are in the Recorded Sound Reference Center's permanent music preservation collection at the Library of Congress. Mike Johnson is an inducted member of America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame. His "T-Shirt Yodel" song is available on Roughshod Records "Mike Johnson Yodeling 40 Years" CD a 2-disc set featuring 50 yodeling songs written and composed by him.

Janet McBride the Yodeling Queen

The late Rosalie Allen and Patsy Montana were America's reigning Yodeling Queens. Janet McBride's high-powered yodeling over the past five decades has left no doubt that she is indeed the Yodeling Queen. I met this fantastic person at the 1999 Avoca Festival. Both Janet and her husband, John Ingraham are also retired Deputy Sheriffs. Sonny Rodgers Yodelers Paradise Show at the August 2000 Avoca Old Time Country Music Festival. This 3-hour show was one of Avoca's most popular attractions featuring Yodelers from around the world. In spite of week-long temperatures relentlessly hovering between 97 and 100 degrees, the performers gave it their all and the fans endured. These excerpted clips represent some of the best performances. There are some audio glitches, of which I wasn't aware until I got home and watched the playbacks. Out of 10 film cassettes I shot, two of them suffered from this defect. This would also be Sonny Rodgers last Avoca attendance. His cancer reappeared and the Good Lord called him home in July 2001. Janet McBride at http://www.heroeswest.com/YodelQueen Mike Johnson music & biography: http://www.freewebs.com/blackyodelno1 http://www.cdbaby.com/all/mikejohnson Janet McBride and Mike Johnson are two of the 18 world famous yodelers featured on the 2006 "Rough Guide To Yodel" CD compiled by Bart Plantenga and released by the World Music Network in London, England.

Funny Yodeling Videos - Kerry Christensen - yodeler yodelers yodel

Kerry Christensen is not your typical yodeler. His concerts and events this year will take him to as many as 23 US states and two or three countries internationally. Kerry spent two years in the country of Austria right out of high school. There he became interested in the Alpine yodeling art. After mastering this difficult medium he was asked in l983 to move his six member family to Orlando, Florida and use his yodeling skills at Walt Disney World's Epcot Center. He performed there for almost seven years until 1990. Today Kerry performs at all kinds of state fairs, corporate events, festivals, and community concerts. He recently lent his unique classical yodeling talent to a full-length Disney animated feature called "Home on the Range." Kerry is perhaps the only full-time yodeler in the world that specializes in all styles of yodeling. He can be strictly Alpine, or he can put on his Stetson hat and do an all-cowboy yodeling show. However, many of Kerry's fans say that their favorite show is when Kerry mixes up the styles. You will hear cowboy, Alpine, Cajun, Latin, Jewish, Hawaiian, jazz, classical, and his always popular mouth trumpet and humorous chicken yodeling renditions.

Mike Johnson's Coffee House Yodel Lesson

The biggest draw to Linda's Coffee House Open Mic is the enthusiastic interaction between the musicians and the patrons. After finishing his kick-off set, Mike is reminded by John that there are newcomers who haven't received the customary Coffee House Yodel Lesson. Sadly, we lost John to cancer earlier this year, and his wife Carol, sitting beside him is coming to terms with it. Rollin' Ralph is on the banjo, and Dave Brunor is on the guitar in the foreground and there are a number of other talented musicians out to the camera range waiting for their slot.

Yodeling Randy Erwin

7 May 2005 at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, Ace Yodeler Randy Erwin entertains a crowd of yodeling enthusiats. This event was created and hosted by Bart Plantenga, author of the 2004 best-seller, "Yodel-Ay-Eee-Ooo, The Secret History of Yodeling Around the World" who was finishing up another book lecture tour on yodeling. Yodelers Lynn Book and Mike Johnson also performed that night. After the show, Randy and Mike got a little confused trying to navigate the New York City subway system back to their transportation. Randy is an extremely versatile yodeler, who also took lessons as a youngster from Janet McBride, The Yodeling Queen. He has performed around the world and has several releases out and is a down-right friendly person. Randy is also the yodeler behind the character Alameda Slim in Walt Disney's animated feature film, HOME ON THE RANGE. Bart Plantenga is working on a follow-up book, entitled "Yodel In Hi-Fi" and has several more yodeling CDs in the works as a follow-up to his 2004 compilation "The Rough Guide To Yodel" featuring 18 world famous Yodelers, including Mike Johnson and Janet McBride.

Learn How To Yodel With Bonnie

I'm sorry for the double upload of this. I've learned a lesson - listen to the WHOLE video as shortly as possible after uploading to youtube. The previous version of this video had an error (that I overlooked) that ruined the whole thing. Sadly enough, in the process, I lost a comment from my favorite Youtuber, Daniel Gardner :( Here is the original description I had on this video: Hi folks! When I wanted to learn how to yodel 3 or 4 years ago I couldn't find much material out there. Here is a free video on how to yodel. I hope to make other videos like this, perhaps covering some new yodels and tips and tricks. Stay tuned, and if you would like to be informed when a new video comes out, subscribe :) Here's a link to some more info I have online about yodeling. http://generalismo.com/2007/10/01/free-yodeling-video/

Mal Webb Sideways Yodeling

It's yodeling, Jim, but not as we know it. I don't know of anyone else who's really played with it much. I'm sure Bobby McFerrin could if he wanted to! And yes, it's all real (unlike those video responses... haha!) Check out more of my stuff (including my laryngoscopy!) on my channel (malwebb1), http://malwebb.com and/or http://myspace.com/malwebb1 . Oh, and apologies for the dodgy talking moments... I was determined to do it in one shot and it was hot that day. And thanks to Deta and Rob for the use of their lovely Berlin apartment.

YODELING operatic contralto - SCHUMANN-HEINK - Millocker

A PARTY RECORD for your opera buddies! Schumann-Heink lets down her hair to yodel! Ernestine Schumann-Heink (1861-1936) sings a little-known Alpine YODELING song by Millocker, "I und mei Bua," recorded for Victor Sept. 29, 1908. One wonders when and why Schumann-Heink learned to yodel...and whether she had 2nd thoughts about having recorded this gem, as it didn't remain in the Victor catalog all that long. Shumann-Heink was born as Tini Rössler to a German-speaking family in the town of Lieben, near Prague, now in the Czech Republic but then part of the Austrian Empire. Her father Hans Rössler was a shoemaker. The family moved to Graz when Tini was thirteen. Here she met Marietta von LeClair, a retired opera singer who agreed to give her voice lessons. In 1877 she made her first professional performance, in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in Graz. Tini made her operatic debut at Dresden's Royal Opera House on October 15, 1878 as Azucena in Il Trovatore—at age 17. The photo in the video, showing the THIN young contralto, was taken when she was 18, in 1879. In 1882 she married Ernest Heink, secretary of the Dresden Opera, with whom she had four children; this violated the terms of their contracts, and both were abruptly terminated from their positions. Heink took a job at the local customs house and was soon transferred to Hamburg. Ernestine remained in Dresden to pursue her career, and eventually rejoined her husband when she secured a position at the Hamburg Opera. Ernest Heink was again thrown out of work when Saxons were banned from government positions, and departed to Saxony to find work. Ernestine, pregnant, did not follow him; they were divorced in 1893. That year she married actor Paul Schumann, with whom she had three more children. The second marriage lasted until Paul Schumann's death in 1904. Her breakthrough into leading roles was provided when prima donna Marie Goetze argued with the director of the Hamburg opera. He asked Ernestine to sing the title role of CARMAN, without rehearsal, which she did to great acclaim. Goetze, in a fit of pique, cancelled out of the role of Fides in La Prophete, to be performed the FOLLOWING night, and was again replaced by Ernestine. Schumann-Heink replaced Goetze as Ortrud in Lohengrin the NEXT evening, again without rehearsal--and was offered a ten-year contract. She performed with Gustav Mahler at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, and became well known for her performances of the works of Richard Wagner at Bayreuth, singing at the Bayreuth Festivals from 1896 to 1914. She first sang at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City in 1898, and performed with the Met regularly thereafter for decades. Schumann-Heink made the first of her many phonograph recordings in 1900. In 1905 she married William Rapp, Jr., her manager. They divorced in 1915. She and her new husband lived near Montclair, New Jersey from 1906 to 1911. She then moved to 500 acres of farmland just outside of San Diego, California, where she would live for most of the remainder ofher life. In 1909 she created the role of Clytemnestra in debut of Richard Strauss' Elektra, of which she said she had no high opinion. Strauss, for his part, was not entirely taken by Schumann-Heink; according to one story, during rehearsals he told the orchestra "Louder! I can still hear Mme. Schumann-Heink!" During World War I she toured the United States raising money for the war effort, although she had relatives fighting on both sides of the war - including her son August Heink, a merchant mariner who joined the German submarine service, and stepson Walter Schumann, and sons Henry Heink and George Washington Schumann, all in the United States Navy. In 1915 she appeared as herself in the early documentary film Mabel and Fatty Viewing the World's Fair at San Francisco, which was directed by and starred Fatty Arbuckle. In 1926 she first sang Silent Night (in both German and English) over the radio for Christmas. This became a Christmas tradition with US radio listeners through Christmas of 1935. Her last performance at the Met was in 1932. In her later years she had a weekly radio program, the Gerber (baby food) Hour. Most of these programs survive which, incidentally, don't run an hour! Ernestine Schumann-Heink died of leukaemia in 1936.

Mike Johnson & Mike Preston Yodeling Duet

Mike Johnson and 15-year old Mike Preston deliver a encore yodeling performance of Hank Williams' "Jambalaya" [which incidentally is not a yodeling song] at the June 1994 Michigan Jamboree in Hillsdale, Michigan. From age 12 to around age 17, Mike Preston was the hottest young yodeler in the New England states who had won virtually every award there was for his age group. And why not, considering his personal friend and mentor was Yodeling Slim Clark. Preston is currently in Nashville pursuing songwriting. This video was shot by singer, songwriter Johnny "J" of Sparta, Michigan. He shot the entire weekend of performances, and has the distinct honor of having the title of his song "Puckerbrush" being adopted and incorporated as the official name of their town, Puckerbrush, Nevada. Performing since the mid-1960s, Mike Johnson' Yodel Song Archives, containing 114 yodeling songs written & composed by him, are now part of the Library of Congress' Recorded Sound Reference Center's permanent music collection.
