Twin Cities Musician Zachary Scot Johnson Performs December 3

Singer-songwriter Zachary Scot Johnson is known to captivate listeners with the lush emotional landscape with his acoustic fusion blend of blues and folk, alt-country and pop, and rock-n-roll, creating a unique musical flavor. According to one critic, "Zachary Scot Johnson has the smooth guitar lines of James Taylor, the spunk of Joni Mitchell, the vocals of Elvis Costello, and the songwriting ability of all three." He performs on keyboard, guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin, and dobro. His newly developed holiday concert will feature both familiar and lesser known Christmas gems.  Johnson has spent the last 10 years touring nationally with artists such as Grammy winners Shawn Colvin and Keb' Mo' and movie stars/musicians Kevin Costner, Rita Wilson and others. His fourth CD will be released this month, and his music is available on iTunes and Amazon. Plan to take a break from the holiday rush and treat yourself with this uplifting, relaxing hour of song on Monday, December 3, 6:30 p.m., in the large meeting room. This event is sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and funded by money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
