I'm a multi-string player, and One Man Band. I play Acoustic Guitar, Cigar Box Guitar, Dobro/Slide Guitar, Banjo & Mandolin, while simultaneously playing Harmonica for lead and Stomp Box and Foot Tambourine for percussion.
My music is described as "Soulful Blues aged & seasoned in Americana Folk Roots." I play mainly original songs, but can perform a fair amount of covers in my own adapted blues/folk/grass style, if you prefer.
I also perform with other musicians of all sorts as a Duo, Trio, or a Full Band.
Jacob Green played at our facility and the energy and excited that he brought to our residents has not been matched by any other performer we have invited to play for us. We were blown away. Hands down I would recommend Jacob Green!
Response from Jacob Green (One Man Band):
Thanks so much! I had a great time performing.

Energetic rhythms and captivating melody , Jacobs Green brews bona fide homegrown music. Blues singer/songwriter with a twist, Jacob Green , becomes an 'OneManBand', Stomp Box under foot, harmonica upon neck, strumming instruments tirelessly touring the country. Whether Green plays guitar, banjo, dobro, or ukulele, he forms rhythm, percussion, and lead simultaneously transforming into the “OneManGreenBand”.
Originally from Wisconsin, Jacob has been consistently touring Cross Country for the past 5 years, playing over 40 states & averaging 130+ shows a year. Whether if it's Festivals, Concert Halls, Breweries, Bars, Restaurants, Coffee Shops or occasionally buskin' on the street, he's the guy who never stops playing music.
Green’s harvests a resonance of the modern day gypsy, awakening original roots and blues folk songs . The once “down-trodden” old-fashioned blues lyrics to positive riffs of change and “be green”. His versatile homegrown, organic, original songs bring a fresh approach to old-school roots and blues folk music.
