    DAVID JACOBS-STRAIN

    with Bob Beach

     

    Saturday, October 18 8:00pm

    $20 door / $17 advance

    SF Live Arts at Cyprian’s is proud to present the superb blues-roots  vocalist/guitarist DAVID JACOBS-STRAIN with harmonica virtuoso BOB BEACH at St. Cyprian’s.

    David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player, and a song poet from Oregon.  He’s known for his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon, as well as his clear, powerful  voice.  His music moves from humorous, subversive blues, to delicate balladry, and then swings back to swampy rock and roll.  It’s a range that ties him to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne.  He has appeared at festivals from British Columbia to Australia, including Merlefest, Telluride Blues Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Hardly Strictly, Bumbershoot and Blues to Bop in Switzerland and has toured with Boz Scaggs, Etta James & Lucinda Williams.

    “David Jacobs-Strain sings and plays slide-driven country blues with a passion and authority that few artists of any age can muster.  But besides firing off compelling covers of traditional tunes… his original songs have served to update and evolve the idiom.”  -Guitar Player
