Hailed by Guitar World as a must see act and dubbed “The Wizard” for his mastery of stringed instruments, Justin Johnson, from right here in the Piedmont, is one of the premier cigar box guitar performers playing today. He highlights the traditional American roots instrument in a way that honors the history of the instrument, while crafting new approaches by incorporating modern technology. Using a foot pedal, Justin expertly builds and records layers of music during his live shows, creating a full band show as a soloist, incorporating up to a dozen stringed instruments, including one-string diddley bows, acoustic and electric 6-string guitar, 12-string guitar, cigar box guitars, resonators, mandolin and percussion. Before his concert, he’ll give a lecture on homemade Blues instruments such as the diddley bow and bones. After the concert, he’ll teach an all-ages “Bottleneck Slide Guitar Workshop with Traditional American Roots Instruments."
