Jacob & Drinkwater *

UK alt-folk duo Jacob & Drinkwater have been called “stand out new folk” by BBC6 Music and “inventive and thrilling” by R2 Magazine. 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.

Featured numerous times on BBC Radio 2, BBC6 Music and lauded by their musical peers as one of the most accomplished acts touring the circuit today.

Support... ELLY TREE
Elly is "the writer of quirky, intelligent and irresistible songs performed with a driving baritone ukulele and a voice that seems to summon up the gods" (Katherine Tait.) She performs solo and with other musicians – probably solo on this occasion. "Beautiful songs, lovely singing, fab uke playing and sublime bass". Driving contemporary folk combining sharp observational lyricism and soaring melodies” Jeremy Johnson. “Artful songs that catch you off guard with wistfulness one moment and power the next. Songs that come from life but create a world which is strange and compelling.” Astrid Coxon of 'Interesting Times Gang'.. A mash-up of art-folk, pop, indie with a touch of ska, the sound brings passion and flair to upbeat and softer material.
