The Catie Curtis connection

Catie Curtis is one of those artists who communicates directly and often with her fans.

In her most recent e-mail, the Boston singer-songwriter sends a tip to look out for her version of "Lo How a Rose Ere Blooming," along with Jenn Kimball, Jimmy Ryan and Kris Delmhorst, in the Dec. 11 episode of "Gray's Anatomy." That's this Sunday for any calendar-challenged readers.

And, for the really big news, Curtis goes into the studio in January to record a batch of new songs with producer Lorne Entress. You can hear some of those when Curtis comes to Club Jaeb at The Center on Feb. 20.

Speaking of Club Jaeb, blues whiz David Jacobs-Strain knocked out a small, but enthusiastic audience on Dec. 5. The talented but humble 22-year-old showed that a Stanford dropout from Oregon can channel country bluesmen. We'll try and get him back here for more folks.
