Christopher Worth & David Jacobs-Strain

Day 01

Main Stage

2:00 PM

“Oregon based singer-songwriters join forces in a powerfully dynamic acoustic duo with roots in delta blues, melodic folk, and vintage soul.”

Drawing from a variety of roots and blues influences with a modern flare, Christopher Worth & David Jacobs-Strain are an inimitable acoustic duo. The two began playing together in 2018 after jamming around a songwriters fire and soon after were invited to play a variety of main stage sets at US festivals across the west coast. Within only a couple months they hit the studio to track what would become Rhududu Sessions Volumes 1 & 2.

Tracked live with minimal editing or overdubs, Rhududu Sessions Vols. 1 & 2 features original material from both writers, several co-writers, and a cover of Robert Johnson’s “Cross Road Blues.” Though their command of craft is clear from the first note, it is the rawness and honesty of the performances that are most impactful. David’s delicate touch on slide guitar is the perfect complement to Christopher’s rhythmic backbeat, and the two both have rich voices that complement one another seamlessly. Above all it is their attention to space and dynamic that sets these recordings aside.

Between the two they have shared stages with Etta James, Robert Plant, Allen Stone, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Rising Appalachia, SaQi, The Polish Ambassador, Dirtwire, and many more…
