Multi award-winning contemporary folk duo Jackie Oates and John Spiers meld together their love of English traditional folk tunes and songs with their voices and acoustic instruments, resulting in a fresh sound that is uplifting, joyful and poignant.

John and Jackie, already admiring of each other’s work, met through the vibrant folk scene of Oxford and its surrounding villages, after Jackie moved to the area. They began playing music together shortly after, through regular appearances at Nettlebed Folk Club, special festival sets, a live set for BBC Radio 3 and John’s contribution to Jackie’s seventh album The Joy of Living.

Join them for the launch of their homespun album ‘Needle Pin, Needle Pin’; this had been scheduled for earlier this year but delayed due to coronavirus restrictions but we are delighted to help the duo with a virtual launch!
