Eric Johnson rocks Birchmere

One lucky crowd at Alexandria’s Birchmere was treated to a master class in six string virtuosity by guitarist extraordinaire Eric Johnson. Mixing fan favorites with new compositions (some still untitled), his performance flowed brilliantly from the high energy opening of “Trademark” to the soothing acoustic calm of “Divanae,” before returning to finish with classics “Cliffs of Dover” and “Zap.” Opening act, Arielle, with whom Johnson has been working over the past year, joined him on a couple of songs during his set, ably demonstrating her guitar prowess while he handled keyboards (Johnson is an accomplished pianist, as well).
