SF Live Arts RETURNS to the NOE VALLEY MINISTRY, to celebrate our 42 years of presenting concerts with a special performance!
THIS FRIDAY, March 3, 8pm at 1021 Sanchez St (at 23rd Street), San Francisco, CA
DAVID JACOBS-STRAIN & BOB BEACH
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
Tonight he performs in a duo format with our favorite harmonica virtuoso, Bob Beach. Check a video of David and Bob HERE.
This performance is made possible by a generous grant from longtime music series supporter Steven Short.
For the health and safety of our performers and audience members, we recommend wearing face masks for all attendees.
