David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player and a song poet from Oregon. He’s known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon. His live show moves from humorous, subversive blues, to delicate balladry, and then swings back to swampy rock and roll. It’s a range that ties Jacobs-Strain to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne.
Jacobs-Strain says he’s “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.”
A harmonica virtuoso, Bob Beach’s career has spanned more than 40 years. While his roots are in blues, rock, and folk, his innate feel for the music transcends genre, which 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.
