The Red Deer Arts Council is excited to announce that the second Emerging Artist Award goes to Charlie Jacobson of Red Deer. Jacobson is a singer-songwriter and talented musician.
The Red Deer Emerging Artist Award, a new award announced in March of 2014, consists of $1,000.00, and a certificate. The award supports and encourages promising Red Deer artists, early in their careers.
Jacobson is a passionate 22 year old blues/rock artist with no fixed address, although he calls Red Deer home. Over the last few years he has played hundreds of shows across the Canadian prairies and back and forth over the Rockies. With his guitar and suitcase drums always packed in the van, his nomadic lifestyle takes him to shows ranging from music festivals, house concerts, large blues clubs to community halls and theatres. You might see him fronting the four-piece Charlie Jacobson Band or recreating that full sound on his own, playing his suitcase drums with his heels, ripping on the guitar, singing and dancing.
