About
Jacob Johnson is a DFW based classical guitarist and lutenist with over 25 years of performing experience in a wide variety of venues and disciplines. Mr. Johnson performs regularly in solo recital as well as for corporate events, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, awards presentations, private house concerts, wine tastings, gallery parties, and events of all kinds. Last summer he gave his first solo concert tour, with concerts in Buena Vista and Denver, CO, for the Utah Guitar Society in Salt Lake City, UT, and for the Sacramento Guitar Society in El Dorado Hills, CA before finally arriving at the Lute Society of America WestFest in Victoria, British Columbia. He is a regularly scheduled performer at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Kimbell Art Museum, and has been featured in local media and on High Plains Public Radio.

Mr. Johnson prides himself on his ability to custom tailor the music for each event, rather than taking an "one size fits all" approach. Instead, Mr. Johnson gets to know the unique needs for each client before the event. Then, on the day of the event, he pays close attention to the room and tailors his set list carefully in the moment in order to more perfectly complement any gathering. In most cases, Mr. Johnson can take requests (given at least 30 days notice). Mr. Johnson performs on high quality handmade instruments by J. Perfecto Rubio (San Antonio, TX) and Mel Wong (San Francisco, CA). When amplification is necessary, he brings top of the line equipment to ensure the best possible sound for each venue. With no less than 7 speaker configurations, Mr. Johnson guarantees that he will have the perfect tools for every application.

Mr. Johnson's most recent media interview can be found on High Plains Public Radio's website.
More demos, resume, and other information are available on Mr. Johnson's website.

I was so thrilled with Jacob from the beginning. I met with him and had a phone interview prior to our engagement. I let him know we wanted a variety of music and encouraged him to sing after hearing his beautiful speaking voice. He claimed he is not a singer, but, trust me....he is!!! He played 3 instruments for us and also sang a few with his guitar. He is a wonderful singer and should put this on his resume'. He made an individualized concert for us doing exactly what I requested. He also gave us some wonderful insight into the instruments and music he was presenting. Totally beautiful evening!! Very talented and professional. Highly recommend!!!!!

Jacob Johnson was a delight to work with. He communicated often and was always quick to reply. He visited our location before the event to get a feel for the room and on the day of the performance arrived early. He is extremely knowledgeable about the histories of the instruments he plays and their place in literary history and is enthusiastic about sharing that knowledge. His talent is amazing. He easily played pieces on both the lute and the guitar that spanned centuries. Our patrons were educated and entertained. He was exactly the kind of performer that our library loves to book. I would highly recommend you consider him for your next event!
