Jackie’s Joy of Living

JACKIE Oates, who is appearing at Sidmouth Folk Week and Dartmoor Folk Festival this August, will be releasing her seventh album, The Joy Of Living, on 24th August.

This intensely personal album marks the birth of her daughter Rosie and the loss of her father. It includes songs made famous by folk greats including Ewan McColl, Lal Waterson and Davey Steele, as well as songs from contemporary artists such as John Lennon and Darwin Deez.

If you don’t have plans for the festivals, Jackie will be at the Shelley Theatre, in Bournemouth on 24th November and at Starcross in Devon on 20th February next year.
