Jackie Oates

UK

Sie ist die neue „Queen of English Folk” und somit gab es berechtigterweise überall „Grande Casino” für Jackie Oates bei unserer vergangenen „12th Guinness Celtic Spring Caravan”-Tournee!

Ihr neues Album „Saturnine” löste in den letzten Monaten einen wahren Medienhype aus, der ihr weltweit durch die Bank allerbeste Kritiken und Einladungen zu vielen großen Festivals, sowie Nominierungen für den prestigeträchtigen BBC Radio 2 Award 2012 einbrachte.
Mit ihrem vierten Solo-Album zementierte Jackie Oates somit aktuell ihren Status als derzeit wichtigste Stimme des englischen Folk!

Winner of two BBC Folk Awards 2009 – The Horizon Award for best newcomer & Best Traditional Track Award, Top 10 on the Mojo album of the year chart 2008


‘Standing out from English folk’s remarkable new wave, Oates has the finest voice of them all…Saturnine shows Oates at the top of her game’ Independent On Saturday [album of the week]

‘Oates has emerged as a frontrunner among the new generation of Brit folkies, marked out by the purity of her voice…An exquisite piece of
chamber folk……makes for an atmosphere of rare enchantment’ The Observer

‘She must surely now be considered among the highest echelons of the modern wave of British folk acts… Devling into her adopted home, the west country of England, for influence and inspiration, she’s added guile, mystery, quaintness and indeed eccentricity to the alluring charm and simplistic style at the crux of her initial appeal…before you know it you have been sucked completely into the album’s quirky, faintly unearthly atmosphere. Which I guess is what she intended all along.’ Colin Irwin, fRoots
