The folk singer behind the 1978 hit "Bluer than Blue" and country singles "Give Me Wings" and "The Moon is Still Over Her Shoulders" returns to the area for a meet-n-greet and concert.

Michael Johnson will be interviewed by husband-wife duo Bill & Kate Isles during a session that includes photos, videos, 40 years of tales from the music biz and a Q&A with the audience.

Johnson performs later that night.

Looking for a good Q? Michael Johnson was once roommates with Steve Martin and gets a one-sentence shout out in the comedian's memoir "Born Standing Up." Ask him about that.
