Jake Jacobson to play free concert at FRC on Thursday evening

Feather River College is bringing back the fall semester kickoff concert and will feature the recent Plumas-Sierra Fair headliner, Jake Jacobson. The concert is this Thursday, Aug. 25 at 5:30 p.m. and is free to attend, with dinner plates being sold on site. The concert will take place at the large lawn located between the gym and library in the center of campus.

For those that missed Jake at the recent Plumas-Sierra Fair, this is a great opportunity to see a very talented and rising Nashville recording artist. From a recent Medium news article, Jake is described as, “a 25-year-old ‘throwback kid’ from the mountains.” Raised in Portola, Jake combines classic country sounds with a boot-stomping modern twist. Those who attended his recent show at the County Fair were treated to a rocking-good concert and describe Jake as, “fun country that’s easy to dance to!”

Not only is Jake a Plumas County local, but he is also an FRC alumnus and excited to be back at his Alma matter to provide a free concert for students and the community. This is a great opportunity for locals to help kick off the fall semester and welcome any new students to the area. Chef Sean Conry will be cooking up his delicious barbeque and dinner plates will be available for purchase on site.

This is a family friendly event and Feather River College is inviting everyone from the area to attend the free show on campus. Parking will be free for the evening and concertgoers should bring a blanket or chairs for seating on the large campus green.

When asked about the event, a representative from FRC commented, “It will just be so nice to have the community back on campus to help us celebrate the start of another semester. We love having our students see all the community support and excitement when it comes to events like this. Our community really helps shape these students’ experience here at FRC.”
