Of the Georgia fiddlers, Earl Johnson was one of the most chaotic. Born Robert Earl Johnson on August 24, 1886, in Gwinnett County, GA, he learned to play the fiddle from his father and spent his formative years playing with his two brothers, banjo-player Albert and guitarist Ester. Johnson's performances with the Dixie Entertainers and the Clodhoppers, consistently balancing technical expertise with a rowdy enthusiasm, rank him as one of the most significant fiddlers and string band leaders of the period. He continued to record until 1931, and his legacy has survived into the 21st century through the performances of modern string bands such as the Freight Hoppers.
