Jake Klar

Friday - July, 08 @ 8:00pm

Jake Klar is an artist based in Turners Falls, MA. His songs showcase an ongoing collection of life’s lyric moments, both the eccentric and the daily. Klar rides on the Americana tradition of storytelling in his work, while bringing in the edge of modern folk/rock-inspired arrangements. Whether Jake is playing solo or with his band - made up of western MA musicians Joel Helander, Garret Salazar, Aaron Okrasinski, and Andy Cass - you will leave his shows with his crooning voice and the poetry of his lyrics ringing through your head.

Klar is a veteran of Northeast Festivals such as Otis Mountain Get Down and FreshGrass. His latest release, Witness, is a follow-up to his acclaimed 2020 collection of songs, Masquerade.
