Jacob & Drinkwater launch debut studio album

Jacob & Drinkwater

Acclaimed alt-folk duo Jacob & Drinkwater are hosting the London Album Launch for their new release This Old River at the legendary Water Rats in Kings Cross on Monday 11th February.

UK alt-folk 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.

In 2016 they recorded Live At Hope Hall with a sell-out crowd at Exeter’s Hope Hall and released an album that captures the intense energy and improvisational nature of the live show and takes the listener on a real emotional journey.

Throughout 2018 the duo performed at festivals in the UK and Europe and London’s historic Union Chapel. In September they embarked on their Waters Of England tour; combining live touring with wild swimming in locations across the UK and documenting their adventures via their social media pages. Gone are the days of post-gig booze ups; the duo are teetotal and promote a healthy, clean living touring regime to support well being and mental health.

The February 2019 This Old River tour will be their biggest to date and coincides with the release of their first full studio album, successfully crowdfunded through Indiegogo.
