SF Live Arts at Cyprian’s is proud to present the superb blues-roots vocalist/guitarist DAVID JACOBS-STRAIN with harmonica virtuoso BOB BEACH recording a live, in concert CD.

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 withBoz 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
Opening the show & also performing with David & Bob is vocalist/guitarist Chris Ayer.

Doors open 25 minutes before the concert. And, YES! There is free parking!
