Folk singers line up a live collaboration

Folk singers line up a live collaboration

TWO acclaimed folk singers are joining forces on Monday (July 3) for a rare joint concert.

Nettlebed Folk Song Club regular Jackie Oates will be joined by Jim Causley for an 8pm show at the village club in the High Street.

Jackie, who was born in Cheshire but now lives in Wallingford, has two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards to her name, while Jim, who hails from the West Country, was nominated for Folk Singer of the Year at the 2017 awards.

Jim is currently touring in support of his album Forgotten Kingdom, the release of which in February last year celebrated his first decade as a solo artist.

Folk song club organiser Mike Sanderson said: “These two accomplished performers are both at the top of their game and to get them both on one bill performing both a solo set each and a duo set together is quite unique.”

Tickets are £13.50 in advance. To book, call the club on 01628 636620 or visit
