About Robert Sarazin Blake

Folk singer

Robert Sarazin Blake

In 2017 Robt Sarazin Blake’s 12th release, the double album, ‘Recitative’ received an A- from legendary Rock Critic Robert Christgau: ‘'Chants that riff on the titles WORK, COUPLES, and SINGLE WOMEN are as instantly indelible as the Springsteen, Weill, Reed, and Van Morrison lifts woven in’. 

For 20+ years Blake has performed all over the US, Ireland & Germany.  His concerts are a mix of his material from his catalogue, new songs, and whatever the moment calls for. ‘Blake being a master of stage presence and completely at ease, he was capable of bringing the crowd to a complete silence. His ability to make a story out of a moment - a moment every audience member is a part of no less - is the one of the best forms of concert entertainment I’ve ever experienced.”

For this special run at Al’s Den, Blake’s usual recitative will be mixed with the unusual holiday songs from his one-man-show 'A Very Subdued Christmas'. He'll be joined by Lucky Brown on Trumpet and David Pender Lofgren on Drums.
