7.45pm - 9.45pm

Quaker Meeting House, 43 St Giles, Oxford OX1 3LW

 

Jackie Oates

Jackie Oates is synonymous with the reinvigoration of English folk. Her mellifluous voice, plaintive fiddle and tantalizing approach to traditional songs gained her several BBC Folk Awards in a career that's seen her release six acclaimed solo albums.

 

An inventive and enthralling artist, Jackie will be performing music from her new album, set for release this year and featuring self-penned, contemporary and rare traditional material.

 

'Jackie Oates has one of the most pure and beautiful voices in English folk music. Its an instrument to luxuriate in: sometimes delicate, occasionally vulnerable, always captivating'. Jeremy Searle, Maverick

 

We're delighted to welcome Jackie and Tristan to the Quaker Meeting House for our Winter Warmer concert.

 

Tickets: £15/£12 concessions

O'Hooley & Tidow at The Northwall Arts Centre: March 21st at 8pm

With a personal invite from Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury, sessions on 6 Music and Radio 2, and five star reviews in The Guardian, the songwriting, voice and piano partnership of Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow is regarded as “One of British folk music’s mightiest combinations” (MOJO).

O’Hooley and Tidow’s originality and skill invites comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, from early Simon and Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle. Their set explores, considers and connects subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way: from an emotionally charged song about an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, to a joyous celebration of the Leeds cycling champion Beryl Burton.

21 March 2018, 8pm
