LIVE in the STUDIO and STREAMING ONLINE from beautiful Blue Rock Studio, join Eric Johnson with Chris Maresh on bass and Tom Brechtlein on drums along with other friends and special guest Arielle for an evening of masterful music and community as we help support folks displaced by epic storm Harvey.

Eric Johnson is one of popular music’s most respected and renowned guitarists. A further fact sometimes overshadowed by the brilliance of Johnson’s playing: The reason why he stands both out and above the rest in a world peopled with many “guitar gods” is that, for Johnson, it’s as much about the music and the song as it is playing his guitar.  “He's an extraordinary guitar player accessible to ordinary music fans,” notes the Memphis Commercial Appeal. That’s because Eric Johnson plays music and not just the guitar. He is also a gifted player of the piano (his first instrument) as well as songwriter, singer and song interpreter. Or more succinctly, Eric Johnson is a diverse, versatile and fully realized musical creator who plays guitar like no one else.


Special guest: Arielle
She has already made the cover of Guitar Player magazine and released the single “California,” which reached No. 3 on CMT Pure. She has a four-octave vocal range. Queen’s Brian May created a guitar role specifically for her in the West End musical We Will Rock You. She played guitar on tour with Cee Lo Green, moved to Nashville, and is receiving attention for her new songs “Pulse,” “Aquamarine,” “Dead Broke,” “The High” and “Kitchen Sink.” Arielle has performed with global activists and opened for Heart, Joan Jett, and Graham Nash at Kiss the Sky in 2014, raising awareness for captive whales and dolphins. http://www.imarielle.com/ 





"I've been very saddened by the recent hurricane in Hurricane Harvey. 

In honor of this, I will be doing a benefit show at Blue Rock Ranch, that will also be streamed to help for a good cause!

I'll be playing some acoustic pieces, then a set with my electric band, with special guest, Arielle

ALL proceeds will be donated to Convoy of Hope and Mercy Chefs for relief of the hurricane victims."

~Eric Johnson
