  • Rob Johnston in concert

    Rob Johnston hails from Hampshire and has been writing, performing and recording his unique style of instrumental guitar music and songs for many years in Art Centres, clubs and major Acoustic and Folk Festivals. He has played live on BBC Radio several times and has received impressive reviews for his work.

    Rob has a stunning guitar technique that blends many styles (both finger picking and plectrum) and he uses multiple tunings to enhance the sound he makes. (Martin Simpson, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Pierre Bensusan are key influences in forming his own style.)

    Not afraid of a bit of technology, Rob uses looping effects to add intricate layers of melody and guitar percussion to his instrumental pieces and his subtle and poetic songs.

    The latest Album, Message to the Moon (Wooden Box Records) is a showcase for the rich and emotive range of ideas that this unique and skilled player can produce.

    “Fantastic…an absolute pleasure” BBC Radio Solent.

    "..this guy has his guitar so powerfully under his spell that we haven’t seen or heard anything like him on L&L in a long, long time. Interested in looping and layering? This is how you do it.”

    “Rob Johnston is a guitar player of supreme quality as the sound he generates from just a steel stringed guitar is astounding.. Awesome guitar technique…. Johnston isn't just a high-class guitarist but a fine singer-songwriter as well.” Folking.com
