Our next concert is on Saturday March 11, 2017, featuring:

Jacob Johnson

And a short opening set by a local performer



Part virtuoso and part storyteller, you might say that Jacob Johnson does with a guitar what Gene Kelly did with dance. Although his songwriting has won awards and his guitar-playing has put him on stage with Tommy Emmanuel and Phil Keaggy, his ability as an entertainer is what has won fans throughout the southeast. He refers to himself as "a ham that just wants to be on stage" but heís much more than that. Jacob is an amazingly talented guitarist and songwriter which, combined with a bit of a personality, makes for a wildly impressive stage performance.
Jacobís grandma taught him to play the guitar when he was a kid, but he learned to play an audience gigging at local wing joints during college. Nowadays itís not just his guitar virtuosity thatíll stop you in your tracks, itís his infectious joy for playing and performing that captures you, locks you in, sends you back into your life two steps happier.
"Jacob rocks!"
-Tommy Emmanuel
"The audience was really into your show! …You are a remarkable performer."
- Phil Keaggy
