Bob Beach

David Jacobs-Strain and Bob Beach have been combining their musical talents in the roots and blues world for some years now, and after the success of their previous live album, Live from the Left Coast, they’ve decided to make another live one. They’re in the midst of recording several shows across Oregon, with a few special guests joining them along the way. Before recording at Tsunami Books in Eugene both Friday and Saturday night, January 16th and 17th, they came by KLCC for songs and conversation.

David Jacobs-Strain merges the blues with his own musical vision, including in acoustic duo shows with Philadelphia harmonica master Bob Beach. He’s also recently been recording in southern California with some stellar players, including bassist Viktor Krauss (of Lyle Lovett's Large Band), Greg Leisz and legendary drummer Jim Keltner.
