Winchester Folk Club: Jackie Oates
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.
Since appearing as a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2003, she has performed extensively at festivals and venues across the country and beyond, in a solo capacity and with her band. She was a founder member of Northumbrian group and Mercury nominated Rachel Unthank and the Winterset, Jackie is now a permanent member of the folk super-group The Imagined Village as well as touring in her own right.
In 2008 she released her second album ‘The Violet Hour’ which was followed by a swathe of glowing national reviews, with the album going on to be one of Mojo’s top ten folk albums of the year. The new year saw Jackie walking away with two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards including the Horizon Award for best newcomer.
