Enjoy the most authentic bluegrass and Americana with Cris Jacobs
Cris Jacobs has had a very solid career for a bluegrass player – you might even say he's become famous in his native USA. He doesn't restrict his music to bluegrass, although it's the kind of music he plays most, veering off into traditional country and folk with equal facility. He's the kind of musician who is most at home jamming with a band in the true sense of the word: playing spontaneous improvisational music to a live audience, just like his musical idols, The Grateful Dead. Join him for a feast of acoustic Americana – you can buy or sell Cris Jacobs tickets on StubHub, whether you want to see him live or give someone else the opportunity.
Nationwide fame as a bluegrass performer
Cris Jacobs started out his performing career with a band called Smooth Kentucky, which is just about as perfect a name as you could get for a Southern bluegrass group. After many years with them, he decided to strike out on his own path and has since produced a catalogue of very well-received albums, finding serious acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine and The Washington Post. If you're a regular online listener to NPR, chances are you will have heard his music there pretty often as well. Having become a national radio and recording star opened up many more avenues for him in the music industry – and thus more opportunities for you to get Cris Jacobs tickets and see him performing live. He has managed to swing some high-profile live gigs too, and one wonders why he didn't simply retire once he'd performed with his own personal hero, Phil Lesh of The Grateful Dead, and everyone's personal hero in one way or another, the universally beloved country music legend, climate activist and all-round good guy, Willie Nelson.
Getting a chance to perform with his musical heroes
Cris Jacobs was a founding member of a band that you can also catch if you want to see him on stage, The Bridge. This is a much more free-form musical outfit, otherwise known as a jam band, in which he plays guitar and handles vocal duties. They play anything that comes to hand, really, from blues to bluegrass, funk to folk. Their closest brush with fame was when they made it onto the soundtrack of the seminal US crime drama series, "The Wire", being natives of Baltimore themselves. They've been long-time favourites in the cool underground joints and open air festivals in the city, and as far back as 2005, they topped the Baltimore City Paper's readers' poll as best band and for best album. They're still very much a crowd favourite over there, so Cris Jacobs tickets have remained popular whether he's playing with them or doing a solo gig. Either way, you can get them right here on StubHub.
