David Jacobs-Strain is a slide guitarist and modern roots singer-songwriter whose musical journey begins in the wellspring of Delta blues, but ranges far afield from there. In his mid-twenties, he already channels age-old wisdom and heartache with such dexterity, energy, and passion that you feel good, even about feeling bad.

    This performance was magic! What a master at guitar and a beautiful voice. Allison & Victor opened for him and then proceeded to accompany on a few songs….it was wonderful. As he said, he is a white jewish blues player from Oregon! Excellent!
