About the event
‘Utterly gorgeous… moving, depth-filled.’ (The Guardian) ‘The soaring purity of Oates’s vocals washes through the songs leaving them like clean streets after a bout of rain.’ (The Arts Desk)
Join us for an evening of music at the beautiful Whitworth Hall!
Jackie Oates is an English Folk Musician, Singer, Performer and Educator. Jackie lives in Oxfordshire with her young family. After 17 years and seven solo albums Jackie Oates is a central figure in the accomplished, informed and stylistically individual English traditional music scene that began in the early 2000s and continues to thrive. Regarded as one of the country’s best loved folk performers, Jackie’s current focus is on collaborating with a diverse array of artists and commissions.
Jackie continues to perform concerts and make the solo records that regularly rack up glowing broadsheet reviews, and in addition of late, is focused on her work as a collaborator and contributor; finding new and surprising artistic corners to illuminate with her voice, research and musicianship.
2020 saw the release of an entirely handmade (right down to the sleeves) duo album with John Spiers, called ‘Needle Pin, Needle Pin’ that features some of the songs from Lace Tellings, Jackie’s radio ballad that tells the story behind the lives of the girls who lived and worked in the lace making areas of Southern England, through spoken word, songs and music.
Jackie Oates continues to bring elements of the English folk tradition to new people and places; in turn bringing a much-needed calm and joy to those who hear it.
