The Johnson Pioneer of Johnson, Kansas

Using songs, historical facts and pictures, Jeff Davidson leads audiences through the history of Kansas, from the time of Coronado to the end of the 1800's. The making of the state of Kansas had a tremendous influence on western U.S. settlement, helping to shape the economy, ideology and heroism of a young nation.

Davidson has presented his unique program to a variety of audiences, mostly in Kansas, but has also performed in Missouri and Washington D.C. For over 25 years, he was the entertainer for the Flint Hills Overland Wagon Train, which gave him a keen interest in Kansas history and an appreciation for the early travelers on the Santa Fe and Oregon trails.

He is the 2013 winner of the serious division of the Kansas Cowboy Poetry contest and is currently serving his 3rd year as President of the Kansas Chapter of the Western Music Association.

Davidson, and wife Kelley, make their home in Eureka, where he works as a watershed specialist for Kansas State Research and Extension.
