David Jacobs-Strain is a slide guitarist and modern roots singer-songwriter whose musical journey begins in Delta blues but ranges far afield from there. In his mid-20s, he already channels age-old wisdom and heartache with such dexterity, energy, and passion that you feel good, even about feeling bad. He tours nationally and has numerous festival credits, which include Strawberry Music Festival, MerleFest, Lugano Blues to Bop Festival in Switzerland, Newport Folk Festival, and Montreal Jazz Festival. He’s also served as faculty at guitar workshops, most notably at Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch. In 2008, Boz Scaggs chose him to open for his summer tour.
