GARDINER — Guitar man Samuel James will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19, at Johnson Hall. A modern guitar master, James’ skill has a depth and range that seems impossible for a man with only two hands.

He was born the last in a long line of performers including dancers, story tellers, choir singers, jazz pianists and porch-stomping guitar thumpers dating back to the 1800s.

Tickets cost $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and $5 for students. For tickets, stop by the Johnson Hall’s box office between noon and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, call 582-7144 or visit
