Friday Live: Jacob & Drinkwater
Tobias Ben Jacob & Lukas Drinkwater - Alt folk duo
Devon based duo Jacob & Drinkwater have been called 'stand out new folk' by BBC6 music and 'inventive and thrilling' by R2 magazine.
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.
