"One of the New York area's finest female singer-songwriters... You can depend on her to deliver some fine music."
 - John Platt, WFUV NY

"It's rare that a voice grabs you and shakes you to the bone like when Claudia Jacobs takes the stage."
- David Dircks, Acoustic Long Island

"Her personality, warmth and optimism... forge an immediate connection with her audience. --described as soulful and bluesy, her musical identity  undergoes countless mutations.
 - Joseph Shortsle, "The North Shoreian" Magazine 
          "She has the gift... you can't merchandise or fake beauty!"
 - David Amram, Musician/Composer/Conductor

"Claudia Jacobs mesmerizes the audience with her incredible voice, ballsy warm personality and songwriting prowess.  She’s the professional and the old friend at the same time, and a joy to have both on and off the stage.”
- Clara Iacopelli,   Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts
"Clearly a woman with a musical message to deliver! Her deep blusey  tones will reach straight into your soul.   Surrounded by a group of talented musicians, each performance is a gift unto those who come to listen."
 - Susan Wahlert, Realmusik House Concerts
Woodlands Folk Festival w/Sonny Meadows and Greg Greenway  2012           


After a semi-brief hiatus due to family illness, Spring started off with some great gigs in and around the tri-state area including joining the long standing Dylan celebration for a couple of tunes at the University Cafe last weekend (5/15) with The Kennedy's, Rod MacDonald (who I think I might have opened for at The Speakeasy back in the day...).  Great vibe, great music all night!  

Another great show with NYRMA at the Boulton Center (5/15).  Over 40 musicians, sold out theatre!

 After 5 successful years, Woodlands will go on hiatus in 2015 for various reasons.  Stay tuned for 2016.

Thanks to WUSB DJ Habanero for naming Rally On! one of her favorite CDs of 2013!!  Can't wait to make you the next one.

Lovely review of our show last Sunday; He compared me to Adele! and heard Big Brother and the Holding Company in Dr. Dan's keyboard licks!  Doesn't get much better than that.  Read it here Patch Review

Join me and the inimitable musicians that are NYRMA at the Boulton Center on Novemeber 2nd for England VS USA 1965: two bands on stage going head to head, back and forth with songs from 1969.  Be prepared for a hell of a night of music:  NYRMA at the Boulton Center.

My beautiful HD-28 is back in its mama's arms after a short stay at the Martin guitar factory, playing better than ever before!  Thanks to all of the folks, especially D.D. whose customer service was exceptional!

Next month I venture to the Hudson Valley for my first NERFA conference, looking forward to the meeting, greeting, playing and overall tumult.  

Beautiful day and satisfying set at the Gallery North Art and Music Festival!   Thanks for coming out!

I am featured in the June 2013 issue of PULSE magazine.   Check out the soft copy article: Electric Lady with the Acoustic Soul.  Hard copy will be in stores in June.

SAVE THE DATE: Woodlands Folk Festival 2014 moves to its earliest time slot yet:  June 7th!   It just keeps getting better and better!

Bradstock XX was a joy as always.  Greg G joined me as did a bunch of guests playing fiddle, trumpet and saxacelo!  I also Got to catch up backstage with my ole friend and inspirator David Amram who's still going amazingly strong at 83; rapping and engaging audiences around the world.  

Wind Down Sunday Series was damp in weather but not in soul.  Great outdoor concert series, we were honored to be asked back!

 With Joe Crookston at Woodlands-what a doll and performer!!!At WFF with the wonderful Joe Crookston!

Once again, the Woodlands Folk Festival outdid it self!  It just gets better and better.  The music, atmosphere and surroundings are wonderful.  This year, I created the CB Jacobs and the Soul Fire Revival with my band and top musicians from NYRMA.

Claudia Jacobs Band with the Kingston Trio concert, great audience, great set, great fun.  The Patchogue Theatre for the Arts is an amazing venue!  Treat yourself to a show there sometime.

June 15th the superhuman musicians that are NYRMA present, at The Boulton Center, Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen in total.  I'll be joining them for some songs; we rehearsed last night and they sound AMAZING.  Get your tickets at
Another Woodlands has been put to bed.  My set with Greg Galluccio on Guitar, Me and Tristan Eggener on Tuba was very special, and seemed to be well received! The whole set was planned around the tuba which gave even Dr. Tuba a renewed love of the instrument.  It included two new songs, covers: Ain't no sunshine and Aretha Franklin's Baby I love You.  I will post videos shortly so you can share in the joy!
