5:30pm – 8:30pm: Music on the Quad: “Jacob Allen Band”
The Quad / Event Center
Jacob Paul Allen is a singer/songwriter from Nelson County, Virginia. His storytelling and melodies plant him somewhere under the umbrella of “Americana” music. Having grown up in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, his musical style has been molded from a list of influences as intricate as the landscape of the ancient Appalachian’s themselves and keeps the listener engaged and wondering what he’s going to throw their way next. From whiskey bent bar room sing-alongs to love sick ballads that tug on heart strings, the lyrics flow with a gripping sincerity that takes the listener along for the ride that lies in the life experiences in each song.
