Jacob Vanko CD Release

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Join us for the release of Jacob Vanko's first-full length album, "10 Years." This talented singer/songwriter was born and raised in the Anthracite Coal Region of Northeast Pennsylvania. The blue-collar towns of the once vibrant valley nestled in Pennsylvania’s slice of the Appalachian Mountains was a compelling backdrop for the young artist’s narrative and poetic songwriting style. An old soul at heart, Jacob found a sense of comfort in performing and writing. Learning to play blues and folk with his father while being influenced by classic rock and grunge made for a unique evolution in writing, composition and storytelling. Touching on observational themes from first-hand experiences brings a distinct intimacy to the songs audiences relate to and appreciate. Singer-songwriter Bob Lewis will be coming up from Nashville to open the show. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the museum.
