Event

David Jacobs-Strain
David is 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.  "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 new album, "Geneseo," 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."

The finest folk, roots and world music in an intimate 200 seat listening room. Doors open at 7 pm to the "Folk Tailgate Party." Don't forget your picnic basket!
