Description: Jenni Johnson, a favorite on Vermont's blues circuit, will return to the Black River Valley to perform as the autumn leaves fall and a hint of chill is in the air. Her concert in Proctorsville's Raise the Roof concert series was walloped by a snowstorm last November that prevented many from making it to the performance. This time we're taking no chances and she's booked for a stand-out concert on October 22.
The smooth voice of this popular Burlington blues and jazz artist will shake the rafters of Proctorsville’s Gethsemane Episcopal Church, backed up by the well-tuned Jazz Junketeers on keyboard, horns, bass and percussion. Born in NYC’s Harlem Hospital and raised in the Big Apple, Johnson now resides in Burlington, Vermont but loves to come south to perform in the tiny Proctorsville church with its big crisp acoustics. Gethsemane Church is at 89 Depot St. (next to Crows Bakery Cafe). The music starts at 4:00 and admission is $10.00 at the door.
