Event Navigation

David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player, and a song poet from Oregon. He is known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon. David displays a range that ties him to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne.  “I try to make art that you can dance to, but I love that darker place, where in my mind, Skip James, Nick Drake, and maybe Elliot Smith blur together.”  His newest album, “Live,” speaks of open roads, longing hearts and flashbacks of Oregon– a record of emotions big and small, and lyrics that turn quickly from literal to figurative.  “I’m fascinated by the way that rural blues inscribes movement and transience.  The music that frees a singer keeps them on the run; there’s a crossroads where a thing can be enchanting but dangerous; damaging but beautiful.”

Bob Beach’s career has spanned more than 40 years based in Pennsylvania. While his roots are in blues, rock and folk, his innate feel for the music transcends genre, and can be integrated into everything from hip hop to bluegrass to kids’ cabaret and more. This has been accomplished both in the studio and at live performances. In addition to masterful harmonica, Bob’s skills include strong percussive flute work, and soulful vocals. Bob also performs with east coast acts The Melton Brothers, The Cat’s Pajamas, Meghan Cary, Philadelphia Jug Band and lots more. He also co- fronts the Theologicals and leads the Bob Beach Trio.
