"Jeffery Straker" Show time 7:30 pm
"Jeffery swears he was born under the piano on the family farm" Singer songwriter Jeffery Straker comes to SFG. Hailing from Saskatchewan, he performs over 100 shows each year, in Canada, and has toured internationally to Mexico, Chile, and Peru, (where he has a Latin American following). He has recorded for "Canada Live" on CBC radio, has been featured in film, tv, and theatre. His folk-pop hooks and rootsy story-telling have been featured in film, TV, and theatrical productions Jeffery's latest album "Dirt Road Confessional" was released May 2017. The12-song collection is centered around themes of a musician's life on the road constantly taking the traveler away from 'familiarity', juxtaposed against themes of the human desire for stability, longing for love, and lasting relationships, (that sounds good). Straker regularly draws comparisons to Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson, Jackson Browne and a young Billy Joel but on Dirt Road Confessional his personal storytelling style stands out distinctly as his own. Don't be late for this show.
