Lullabies to be performed at Quay Arts

The Quay Arts Centre is to welcome award-winning artist Jackie Oates in April, with the performer showcasing her new live show Lullabies.

Building on four successful studio albums, Ms Oates has created a special project aimed at exploring the influence of the folk music scene on lullabies across the ages.

Ms Oates explained: "For a long time I've been fascinated with lullabies, often being struck by the way that, for adults, hearing them can bring back strong memories and feelings of being a child again.

"Over the past few months, I've had a wonderful time exploring my interest in these songs in more detail ... The variety of material, style and purpose has made this a fascinating journey."

Having won two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Ms Oates has toured alongside celebrated folk singer Seth Lakeman, as well as being immortalised by on film by pop-artist David Owen.

In addition to the evening's entertainment, Ms Oates will also be hosting a number of seminars and workshops on the art of the lullaby, which will also be taking place at Quay Arts.

Taking place on April 18th and kicking off at 20:00 GMT, tickets to the show are set to cost £12 for advance bookings and £14 on the door. Quay Arts members will be able to gain entry for £11.

Meanwhile, other attractions of Quay Arts in the coming weeks include the acoustic guitar stylings of acclaimed musician Chris Woods.

Completing a whistlestop tour of the UK and Europe in 2013, Woods will be taking to the stage on March 15th and is set to wow the crowds with his unique playing style and "ear-bending drop-tuned grooves".

He aims to place the guitar at the centre stage of his performance and this is something he is able to achieve with considerable aplomb.

Tickets start from £10 and doors to the venue will open from 19:00.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801549161-ADNFCR
