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 the likes of Tommy Emmanuel and Phil Keaggy, his ability as an entertainer is what has won fans throughout the southeast. Join Jacob this holiday season for an evening of his quirky and inventive renditions of Christmas classics, as well as a few you may have forgotten about!

“Stories differ from advice in that, once you get them, they become a fabric of your whole soul. That is why they heal you.” ~Alice Walker

If anyone knows how to feed the soul thru the fabric of a story, it’s South Carolina’s own Jacob Johnson. Whether he’s playing a famous venue or your living room, the passion of his storytelling is complemented by his easy going and effortless vocals. Jacob’s entertaining and down to earth stage presence is matched only by his stunning showcase of complicated chord progressions and techniques. Magic flies out of his fingertips as he strums, slaps, and taps his favorite Takamine six string.

And this holiday season, that magic will twinkle as bright as the lights on the Rockefeller tree. Like the shiny new wrapping on that classic Jack in the Box, Jacob adds his own uniqueness to traditional hymns such as “Silent Night” and “Little Drummer Boy”. He even breathes new life into ones that Santa may have left collecting soot in the chimney. And let’s not forget, those fan favorites that have garnered Jacob impressive awards over the years—“The Ferryboat Waltz”, for instance. And he’ll be the first to tell you, his Christmas selection came “organically. . . I picked songs that just resonated with me and had a good message.”

That good message is waiting for you to receive it. So grab your hot cocoa, find a seat by the fireplace, and feast your twinkling eyes on the delightful Jacob Johnson.
