Careys Secret Garden: Gig in the garden
With Jackie Oates and John Spiers
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. Enjoy the sound of folk music whilst relaxing in the beautiful walled garden at Carey’s Secret Garden and be part of something unique and special for our first musical gig.
Their first album features songs from the Oxfordshire area that were originally sung by lace-making factory girls to keep time whilst crafting lace and to add enjoyment to their work.
Although followers of British folk music will be familiar with Jackie and John from their other high calibre bands, this collaboration began quite innocently and spontaneously when the pair first started playing together for fun during guest spots at Nettlebed Folk Club in Henley-on-Thames.
‘It’s a treat to listen to…Oates & Spiers are a fine match, the tunes elegantly paced and played, while Oates remains one of our finest singers’ Folk Witness
