Jackie Oates, Lullabies: Exeter Phoenix, Wednesday 24th April, 2013.

The idea of a child being sung to sleep by a parent, is an enduring image and an experience which has changed little over the centuries.

Lullabies have also formed a unique catalogue of folk material that has sometimes explored dark and dangerous themes hardly likely to lead to a peaceful sleep for anyone old enough to understand the lyrics.

Inspired by an in-house project at Opera North in Leeds, where visiting artists were filmed performing a lullaby from their repertoire, Jackie Oates is presenting a new collection of lullabies from England and beyond and using this as a basis for a live show.

Formerly a member of The Mercury-nominated The Unthanks, Jackie has since carved out an astonishing solo career which has made her a name to conjure with in folk music circles, in demand for work with other artists, collaborative projects, even the subject of pop-art and a line of cosmetics.

She is newly established as a member of the all-star multi-cultural folk band Imagined Village alongside Eliza Carthy, Johnny Kalsi, Martin Carthy and others.

Winner of two BBC Folk Awards, Jackie has toured the UK and abroad and performed on stages at some of the biggest festivals in the UK including Cambridge Folk Festival, Sidmouth Folk Week and Shrewsbury Folk Festival.

‘She must now surely be considered among the highest echelons of the modern wave of British folk acts.’

The evening performance is twinned with an afternoon workshop performance for parents/carers and children.

This 45 minute workshop for 0-4 year olds introduces children and their parents to lullabies and sleep songs for use at home.

The Lullabies workshop is free and will take place between 14:00 and 14:45 on 23 April 2003. Book through Exeter Phoenix Box Office.

There is a Meal Deal available for the evening event Lullabies. Details available from Exeter Phoenix Box Office.
