Singer-Songwriter Night with

Jacob Johnson

Saturday, September 2, 2017, 8:00 pm
at the 1867 Sanctuary Arts and Culture Center



Preservation New Jersey is pleased to present Singer-Songwriter Jacob Johnson in his first appearance in the wonderful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary Arts and Culture Center.

Part virtuoso and part storyteller, you might say that Jacob Johnson does with a guitar what Gene Kelley 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 he's much more than that. Jacob is an amazingly talented guitarist and songwriter which, combined with a bit of personality, makes for a wildly impressive stage performance.

(He) has infused his performance wih personality. It runs right down his arms into his fingers, onto the strings — the guitar is not just an instrument in the hands of Jacob Johnson — it's his soulmate.No Depression
