Jacob & Drinkwater

Jacob & Drinkwater

Wednesday, 27 April 2022, 8.00pm

South-west based duo Jacob & Drinkwater have been called “stand out new folk” by BBC6 Music, with their live show described as “intense and spellbinding” by Folk Radio UK. The duo formed in 2014, playing their first gig together at the iconic Glastonbury Festival.

The duo’s dynamic and emotionally charged live show with all its energy, musical chemistry and spontaneity has drawn comparisons with the virtuosic pairing of John Martyn and Danny Thompson. Jacob’s sweeping vocals never fail to captivate, delivering many a spine-tingling moment; the fluidity and precision of his finger-picking underpinned by Drinkwater’s nimbly rhythmic double bass; at times sweetly soaring, haunting, percussive and driving, the layers of depth a perfect counterfoil. The added complement of stirring vocal harmonies nicely rounds off the mix.

Jacob & Drinkwater’s latest album ‘More Notes from the Field’ – released October 2021, is an exploration of the theme of friendship and connection through song. Written and developed remotely between the duo’s lockdown homes in Bydgoszcz, Poland and Stroud, Gloucestershire, Tobias & Lukas made their most ambitious recording to date. It has been met with glowing reviews from Folk Radio UK, Fatea and Folking, was playlisted by US-based Americana magazine ‘No Depression’ on a ‘best of 2021’ list and included in Folk Radio UK’s Top 100 albums of 2021. ‘More Notes from the Field’ was described as “..beguiling, lyrical, and perfectly attuned..” by Songlines magazine in a rave review.
