Come check out Jacob Vanko live at Mulligan's. The singer/songwriter was born and raised in the anthracite coal region of Northeast Pennsylvania.
Defiant in youth but an old soul at heart, the artist found his only sense of comfort in performing. Playing blues and Folk with his father quickly evolved into writing and telling stories.
“I approached my father as a youngster and asked him to teach me a song on guitar. He taught me G, C and D and told me he would show me a Bob Dylan song once I come up with my own chord progression first. In hindsight, I guess my first guitar lesson was also my first experience in writing music.”
