First shows with Jackie Oates

I’ve just returned home from my first three concerts with the Jackie Oates band. We played Dartington Hall, in South Devon, Caerleon, South Wales and finally, Nettlebed Folk Club near Henley-on-Thames.

From the first few chords of the opening number, it felt like a great place to be. Great music, great band – a joy to be involved.

The Dartington show was particular significant on a personal level, because Dartington Hall was where I went to college, but as a music student, I never got to play in the Great Hall. Ten years later, and I finally had the chance, and what a beautiful room to play in, it was!

Next stop for the band is the Howard Assembly Rooms in Leeds on Friday 10th March…
