House Concert with Jacob Johnson Coming to Town
We first met Jacob when he came to play a few tunes with Japanese guitarist Shohei Toyoda at a house concert this past summer. Thank you Shohei for the introduction! Everyone was floored. His vocals, guitar skills and presence on stage all came together in such a beautiful way that Jacob left our audience wanting more!
We are excited to share that Jacob will be playing a house concert (the last of our series for 2016) on 12.9 in Tryon. Just pull up a few of Jacobs videos to get an idea of just how entertaining and enchanting of an evening this will be!
The House Concert Details: Big thanks go to Ki and Laraine Wells for hosting this event!
When: The evening of December 9th.
Cost: Generous donations appreciated. All funds raised go straight to the musician so come ready to share big!
Seating for this concert is very limited. If you are interested in attending please contact us so that we can add you to the list (or wait-list).
Good news – Folks in our area also have another opportunity to see Jacob in concert. On November 18th at 7:00 PM Jacob will play at Frank’s Coffee and Music House in Inman, SC. Email Frank for tickets.

“Jacob rocks!” -Tommy Emmanuel
“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 he’s 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.”
