TOBIAS BEN JACOB & LUCAS DRINKWATER

4.30-5.20pm

Tobias Ben Jacob & Lucas Drinkwater

Devon based duo Jacob & Drinkwater have been called ‘stand out new Folk’ by BBC6 Music and ‘inventive and thrilling’ by R2 Magazine. Their indie release ‘The Burning Low EP’ has garnered airplay and glowing reviews from such quarters as Radio 2’s Folk Show, BBC 6's Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, BBC Bristol, FRUK, Fatea, Spiral Earth, Louder Than War and ‘Whispering’ Bob TV.

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 compliment of stirring vocal harmonies nicely rounds off the mix.

MOCHARA

5.30-6.25pm

Mochara

Maurice Dickson and Catherine Ashcroft met in 2008 when Catherine recorded her first CD “Take Flight and Follow” at Maurice's studio in Cumbria. This led to them collaborating and Maurice invited her to guest on his forthcoming European tour. A great success they soon formed the duo “Mochara”. Taking the name from the Irish meaning of “My Friend”. The pair have since performed at various festivals, folk clubs, theatres and music venues throughout the UK, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Denmark and Norway. They have also released 3 albums, “In Your Blood” in 2010, “Spirits and Dreamers” in 2013 and more recently the fabulous “Live at the Island” in 2015.
