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, Jackie has performed extensively at festivals and venues across the country and beyond.

Originally a member of The Mercury-nominated The Unthanks she has since carved out an astonishing solo career.

She has toured with EMI-signed folk-pop star Seth Lakeman, been immortalized as a Jackie Onassis for the 21st century by pop-artist David Owen and the cosmetics firm Lush developed a skin tint named after her which is sold in over nine hundred shops globally.

She is also an established member of the all-star multi-cultural folk band Imagined Village alongside Eliza Carthy, Chris Wood, Martin Carthy and more. In recent years, Jackie has provided vocals for the soundtrack to Michael Woods’ ‘The Great British Story, A People’s History’ on BBC 2, appeared on ITV’s ‘Ade in Britain’ and in Midsomer Murders’ episode ‘The Ballad Of Midsomer County’.
