Ahab emerged from the vibrant music scene in Hoxton and Shoreditch, the creative heart of north London. The band share a love of American music and songwriting, and honed their skills busking throughout London. Mixing Americana with a British folk-rock sensibility, Ahab’s music has a laid-back swing but there’s also an undercurrent of indie edginess – a lot like the popular Munford and Sons.

“Ahab is the real deal – top-notch UK Americana featuring tight four-piece harmonies.”Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2

Support comes from Lancashire folktronica trio Harp and a Monkey.
