Tobas Ben Jacob

“Superb, excellent, stand out new folk.” – BBC Radio 6

Tobias Ben Jacob has long been one of our favourite acts in the loosely defined South West folk scene and with good reason. From high-crystalline falsetto to riff-driven rock, Tobias's brand of folk is constantly reinventing itself. Having achieved wide acclaim as part of the Roots Union with BBC Folk Award winners Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, Tobias has played everywhere from Glastonbury to Larmer Tree, including the legendary Maida Vaile studios and recordings in Nashville, Tennessee. Fresh from national airplay with a new album imminent, he joins us for an intimate show in the Courtyard for Poltimore Festival 2017.
