David Jacobs-Strain is a modern roots singer-songwriter whose musical journey began in the wellspring of country blues. At the age of 25, this hot guitarist and provacative singer has refined a youthful mix of raw energy and technique into powerful, nuanced performances that far outstrip one-dimensional notions of genre. He tours nationally and has numerous festival credits, which include the Strawberry Music Festival, MerleFest, the Lugano Blues to Bop Festival in Switzerland, the Newport Folk Festival, and the 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.
