The pivotal event in Johnson’s rise to becoming, as Guitar Player says, “one of the most respected guitarists on the planet,” was his million-selling, now-classic 1990 album Ah Via Musicom (which loosely translates as “communicating through music”). It was his second release, following Tones, his 1986 major label debut. Musicom yielded three Top 10 singles – including ”Cliffs of Dover,” which has become Johnson’s signature song.

The Austin, Texas-based Johnson also closes out 2017 with a new album, Collage, that combines five new original songs with five covers that reflect both his inspirations and range. 

Once Ah Via Musicom hit, the Los Angeles Times noted how he had already “been compared with rock’s immortals.” But Eric himself modestly demurs. “I don’t think I’m a rock god. I just keep playing. It’s fun, and I’m glad people enjoy it.”

MN Acoustic Guitar Showcase Brunch at Icehouse MPLS on Eat Street, This Sunday October 28, 2018, 11AM, no cover


The MN Acoustic Guitar Showcase is the brainchild of guitarist Elgin Foster and features a diverse array of Twin Cities-based acoustic guitar players at venues like Icehouse MPLS on Eat Street and the Aster Cafe on the riverfront in N.E. Minneapolis. These performances often feature players like Sam Breckenridge, whose progressive acoustic guitar style pays tribute to its wellspring, Michael Hedges, or the transcendent, floating, dream-like music of Dan Schwartz with his harp guitar and Weissenborn acoustic slide guitar. A sampler CD of a number of M.A.G.S. artists is also available.

This Sunday October 28, 2018 at 11AM will be another in a long string of monthly Sunday brunch shows at Icehouse, and features Gabriel Andrews, Joel Shapira, and Foster himself. These shows are very worthy of your attendance and you can find free on-street parking a block off of Nicollet on Blaisdell.

Upcoming Shows:

10/28/18 Gabriel Andrews, Elgin Foster, Joel Shapira

11/25/18 Elgin Foster, Jerry Kosak, Steve Letho

12/23/18 Elgin Foster, Greg Herriges, Dan Schwartz
