The Friends Of Thimblemill Library are pleased to welcome acclaimed alt-folk duo Jacob & Drinkwater to the library to play songs from their new album More Notes From The Field. Opening the night will be a solo set from locally based Michelle Holloway of Bonfire Radicals.
Dear friends, we are delighted to let you know we're heading out on tour throughout September and October this year, playing songs from our new album 'More Notes from the Field'.
These are going to be our last shows for a few months, as Lukas is relocating to Australia in December.
This doesn't spell the end of the duo, just adapting to a more condensed touring format. We'll be heading out for some festivals around the UK next summer, and another venue tour in the autumn, but this is the last chance to catch our live show this year!
As we're both such keen wild swimmers, we're bringing back the 'Waters of England' theme from our 2018 tour, so please let us know of your favourite swimming spots around these shows, and we'll swim them! If you fancy joining us for a dip, even better.
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.
