LIVE at the Classic Wineseller: Jacob Johnson @ The Classic Wineseller

Singer-songwriter and guitar sensation Jacob Johnson appears Saturday, June 28 at 7pm LIVE at the Classic Wineseller. Johnson is a young, energetic performer who has shared the stage with songwriting masters from Edwin McCain to David Wilcox, and who hangs out with guitar heroes like Tommy Emmanuel, and Tim Reynolds (right-hand man to Dave Matthews).

While it is his flashy guitar pyrotechnics that might grab your attention, his songwriting, personality, and performance style are what set him apart from the rest of the young guitar-slinging pack. In short, to quote Tommy Emmanuel, “Jacob rocks!”

His debut CD offering, Est. 1986, ranges from Dylan-esque folk tunes to quirky ballads, such as the love song to his guitar, “Treat Her Right.” Johnson shows that great music doesn’t always have to be serious. Johnson likes to call his style of playing “Neo-acoustic folk/funk”.

He has been compared to John Mayer, James Taylor, Jack Johnson and Keller Williams. For more information on Jacob Johnson, visit
