Gerry Johnston

Solo Acoustic Jazz Guitarist

Duke Ellington once said, “There are only two kinds of music – good music and the other kind”. As one fortunate enough to have studied jazz guitar in Boston at Berklee College of Music and classical guitar at New England Conservatory I completely agree with Ellington.

Combining my love of classical and jazz, along with an eclectic interest in various styles of music, I have made a particular specialty of performing selections from “The American Songbook” on classical guitar. These jazz and popular standards are widely known and loved across generational lines. My repertoire also includes a number of traditional classical guitar works.
