Jackie Oates Artist of the Month
Jackie Oates is Folk Radio UK’s ‘Artist of the Month’ for May 2015. Her latest album, The Spyglass & The Herringbone, distils the very essence of Jackie’s art into a beguiling blur of the then and now of folk song creating a beautiful jewel of a record. Read our Review & Interview below.
The Spyglass & The Herringbone gathers up all of Jackie Oates promise to date, dusts it down and adds polish to present a sparkling jewel of a folk record. It’s a rare and most refined thing of gift of great beauty and as good a record as you could rightly hope for, that’s all yours for the small price of admission.
