By the age of 14, Canadian songwriter Johann Löwenberg was performing at Ronnie Hawkins’ club on Yonge Street in Toronto. He was a regular visitor at the ‘pad’ on Dupont St. where visiting folk artists would stay. He started writing his own songs in 1966. When people shouted out requests, he’d play one of his own and pass it off as one of theirs. In the early ’70s, he became quite active in the coffee house circuit at Fat Alberts with Tony Hanik, Glen Hornblast, and Sam Larkin and continued well into the new millennium.
