Palindrome to host Jacobs-Strain, Beach on Friday

PORT TOWNSEND — David Jacobs-Strain and Bob Beach will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The concert will be at the Palindrome at Eaglemount Cidery, 1893 S. Jacob Miller Road.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available at www.ticketstorm.com/e/29777/t or $25 at the door.

Jacobs-Strain and Beach have been performing together since 2010 and currently perform between 70 and 100 shows each year on both the east and the west coasts.

Jacob-Strain, a slide guitarist from Eugene, Ore., has studied masters like Robert Johnson, Taj Mahal and Jackson Browne but plays his own sound.

“I wanted to tell new stories, it just wasn’t enough to relive the feelings in other people’s music,” Jacobs-Strain said.

Jacobs-Strain has performed at Merlefest, Telluride Blues Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Hardly Strictly, Bumbershoot and Blues to Bop in Switzerland.

He has shared the stage with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Boz Scaggs, Etta James, The Doobie Brothers, George Thorogood, Robert Earle Keen, Todd Snider, Taj Mahal, Janis Ian, Tommy Emmanuel, Bob Weir, T-Bone Burnett and Del McCoury.

Beach has been a working musician for more than 40 years, bringing harmonica, flute and vocals to a broad scope of genres.

A Philadelphia native, Beach has recorded or performed with acts such as Ollabelle, Langhorne Slim, The Avett Brothers, Pat Wictor, Beaucoup Blue and Fruit.
