The Jackie Oates Trio
September 25 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM BST£16.50
September 2022 sees the launch of Gracious Wings, the 8th solo studio album by Jackie Oates. Jackie has once again been working with producer and sound engineer Richard Evans in Bath, to produce an 11-piece album of traditional English folk songs, self-penned material and the odd unexpected cover version!
In September/October 2022, The Jackie Oates Trio, featuring Mike Cosgrave (piano, accordion, guitar) and John Parker (double bass) will commence a UK tour to perform material from the new album. We´re thrilled to be hosting an online date to allow fans everywhere to celebrate the album launch and hear this beautiful new music played live.
ABOUT JACKIE OATES
Jackie Oates is an English folk musician, singer, performer and educator. She lives in Oxfordshire with her young family. After 17 years and seven solo albums, Jackie 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. She continues to perform concerts and make solo records that regularly rack up glowing broadsheet reviews, and in addition she is focused on her work as a collaborator and contributor; finding new and surprising artistic corners to illuminate with her voice, research and musicianship.
Jackie Oates continues to bring elements of the English folk tradition to new people and places, with her music in turn bringing a much-needed calm and joy to those who hear it.
