Jackie Oates – spring tour dates

Jackie Oates

The award winning folk singer Jackie Oates and her band are performing at Water Rats, Kings Cross on Tuesday 12th February.

Jackie Oates is a singer and fiddle player hailing from Staffordshire. Her unique treatment of English ballads and songs, and pure, haunting singing style has established her at the forefront of the new English folk revival.

Winner of BBC Folk Awards for best newcomer and best traditional track, Jackie Oates is a name synonymous with the reinvigoration of English folk music, beguiling audiences with a delicate balance of tradition and reinvention.

Her mellifluous voice and imaginatively plaintive fiddle style has won her several BBC Folk Awards during a 10-year recording career that began as a member of the emerging Unthanks and has continued with five acclaimed solo albums. Collaborations with Alasdair Roberts, Belinda O’Hooley and her brother Jim Moray on material that’s ranged from traditional ballads to eerie lullabies and rich contemporary songs, Jackie has earned fans beyond the folk scene she grew up in.
