Thorganby Village Hall
Main Street, Thorganby
Thorganby folk are delighted to welcome Jackie Oates, an award winning singer and fiddle player. Her unique treatment of English ballads and songs, and pure, haunting singing style, has established her at the forefront of the English Folk revival.
The Joy Of Living’ is Jackie’s 7th Album. Recorded between August 2016 and December 2017, the album features a series of songs recorded in Jackie’s kitchen with her good friend and producer, Simon Richmond, with the occasional offering from her daughter Rosie (at that point 9 months old). The album features performances from Jack Rutter, John Parker, Mike Cosgrave, John Spiers, Megan Henwood and Matt Allwright. The period of time marked a very poignant one as Jackie was coming to terms with being a mother and the sudden loss of her father at the same time. The 17 songs featured on the album, each explore very personal aspects of the journey.
