GARDINER — Samuel James will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center, 280 Water St. Doors open at 7.

With a voice of grit and gravel, roots musician James sings with an authenticity lost in time. A modern guitar master, James’ skill has a depth and range that seems impossible for a man with only two hands.

An award-winning songwriter, one of the world’s most innovative guitar players, and a Moth-featured storyteller, James brings all of this to his amazing stage show. A live performance by James is part theater concert, part stomping-on-the-porch dance party and part stand-up comedy.

Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $5 for youth in advance; and $19 for adults, $17 for seniors, $5 for youth at the door the night of the show. Tickets are available at Johnson Hall’s box office from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, by calling 207-582-7144 or by visiting at
