Saturday 1 October / 9.30pm
(Approx running time: 1 hour 45 minutes, no interval)
Since appearing as a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards in 2003, Jackie Oates has established herself as a major presence in the folk world, performing all over the country and abroad. Her unique treatment of English ballads and songs, and her pure haunting vocal style has established her at the forefront of the new folk revival. After our success last year with the Whistlebinkies we continue our traditional music strand with Jackie and her band in this late evening concert at the Dumfries Arms Hotel.
