"There are plenty of acoustic artists out there, loop pedals in tow, creating their very own one man band experiences. The difference between them and Rob Johnston is that this guy has his guitar so powerfully under his spell that we haven’t seen or heard anything like him on L&L in a long, long time. Interested in looping and layering? This is how you do it."
“Rob Johnston is a guitar player of supreme quality as the sound he generates from just a steel stringed guitar is astounding.. Awesome guitar technique…. Johnston isn't just a high-class guitarist but a fine singer-songwriter as well.” Folking.com
"..confident and joyous ..fluid and reflective (and appropriately reminiscent of Martin Simpson without being cloned)..Such individual, engaging and assured playing is always a pleasure to listen to." Folk-on-Tap Magazine.
“Fantastic…an absolute pleasure” BBC Radio Solent.
He played brilliantly.. a truly stellar performer.. 'He's the best guitarist I've heard in years!' was heard throughout the audience. The man is a genius! Petersfield WriteAngle Poetry and music cabaret 2010.
“Staggering playing...a blistering session. He is a mighty, mighty fine player.” Phil Jackson, South Live, BBC Southern Counties Radio.
