Folk in the Foyer: Jacob & Drinkwater
Stand-out new folk from Devon based duo Tobias ben Jacob & Lukas Drinkwater.
The pair's energetic live shows get called "spellbinding". Their recordings win airplay & glowing reviews from Radio 2’s Folk Show, BBC 6's Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, BBC Bristol, FRUK, Fatea, Spiral Earth, Louder Than War & ‘Whispering’ Bob TV.
Singer-songwriter Tobias ben Jacob's original writing weaves love, nostalgia, adversity & hope - and has taken him to BBC Madia Vale Studios, Nashville Tennessee & a run of summer festivals including Glastonbury and Larmer Tree. Lukas Drinkwater is known as "one of busiest musicians in the UK", a producer, performer & session player in demand in the worlds of folk & jazz, he has featured on many acclaimed albums & worked with a long list of illustrious performers.
The duo's dynamic live show has drawn comparisons with the pairing of John Martyn & Danny Thompson - Jacob's sweeping vocals & Drinkwater's nimbly rhythmic double bass never fail to captivate.
An evening of music not to be missed.
