Zack Johnson was born one cold, blizzard night in Great Falls, Montana. Two short years later he up and left for Roseburg, Oregon. He felt a strong draw to Irish fiddle tunes and classical violin music at a young age. Making, building and carving a multitude of various projects filled much of his time growing up. Naturally, the first time he picked up a violin he had to make one. So he sought instruction from a local maker, David Dunn, and completed his first violin. That was enough to get him hooked.
