Jackie Oates and John Spiers
November 20, 2021 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM GMT£15
Multi award-winning contemporary folk duo Jackie Oates and John Spiers meld together their love of English traditional folk tunes and songs with their voices and acoustic instruments, resulting in a fresh sound that is uplifting, joyful and poignant.
Oates and Spiers first started playing together during spontaneous guest spots at Nettlebed Folk Club. They began playing extended sets and working on material from their native Oxfordshire, including the ‘Lace Tells’ that form Jackie’s radio ballad ‘The Lacemakers – the Lost Art Of Telling’.
Their album, ‘Needle Pin, Needle Pin’ is very much a homespun album, recorded as live during the first weeks of January 2020. The album features tunes and songs from the Oxfordshire area.
