.Eric Johanson Brings the Blues to the Big Easy

Eric Johanson is a Billboard-charting performer, belting out original tunes that defy the dusty boundaries of blues, rock, and progressive Americana. This Saturday, he brings his spellbinding fretboard magic to Petaluma’s The Big Easy.

Five of his latest solo projects—”The Deep And The Dirty,” “Live at DBA: New Orleans Bootleg,” “Covered Tracks: Vol. 1,” “Covered Tracks: Vol. 2,” and “Below Sea Level”—skyrocketed into the Billboard blues top-ten stratosphere. To top it off, Guitar Player Magazine just anointed him as one of 2023’s Top 25 New Blues Guitarists.

If you think Johanson is merely a studio phenomenon, you’re sorely mistaken. Johanson is a road warrior. Festival-goers have witnessed his electric aura at stage-shaking events like the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, the Las Vegas Big Blues Bender, the iconic New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and Crescent City Blues Fest, to drop a few names.

When it comes to collaborations, Johanson’s shared the spotlight and guitar riffs with a who’s who of modern roots legends. His dance card includes Cyril Neville, Anders Osborne, the Neville Brothers, Samantha Fish, Tab Benoit, JJ Grey, and local legend Eric Lindell.

Eric Johanson performs at 8 pm, Saturday, Sept. 16, at The Big Easy. 128 American Alley, Petaluma. Tickets are $15 and available here.
