Join us for live music from Betty Johnston every Thursday 6-9pm beginning on April 19th 2018!
Betty Johnson is known for her expressive voice and accomplished guitar playing. Her performances are emphasized through acoustic jazz, blues and her own songwriting originals. Audiences also love her ambient exploration and re-styling of beloved familiar tunes.
She regularly performs her songs throughout British Columbia and over the year has shared the stage with the likes of Juno-nominate Maria Dunn; Award-winning, Mae Moore; Blues Legend, Ken Hamm; Canadian Roots Artist, David Essig; and Rock Band, Chilliwack. Betty is a veteran participant of the George Ryga Centre, an intensive Songwriters retreat, and was greatly encouraged by legends Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes to "get her stuff out there ... don't hold back! People want to hear your music." There are two words Johnson uses to describe songwriting; "agonizing and amazing!” Lately, Johnson has spent summers at Sorrento’s popular BC Swing Camp - Jazz Camp for adults where she has honed her craft.
