When: Wed., Aug. 12, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 15, 8 p.m. 2015

Austinite Eric Johnson is a guitar nerd’s dream player — full to the brim with chops and a desire to express them. Since the late ’70s, Johnson has worked as a session musician for Cat Stevens, Carole King, Christopher Cross and anybody who needs a crisp Fender tone. In 1990, his platinum-selling album Ah Via Musicom produced the Grammy-winning single “Cliffs of Dover.”
