Biography

Jacobean Ruff are a young modern folk band based in Leeds, forming in mid 2012. Despite being relatively young, they have already gained notoriety on the Leeds gig scene, playing in various venues including Oporto, the Cockpit, the Wardrobe, the Brudenell, Nation of Shopkeepers and Carpe Diem, as well as beginning to establish themselves as a festival band, playing in 2013 alone Beacons, Live at Leeds, Tockwith Beer Festival and Lainfest, among others. Their music has often drawn comparisons with Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes and Laura Marling, and could easily be described as a blend of the three. Communion Leeds called it 'An exciting pairing of thoughtful, traditional folk styles and clever pop songwriting'.
