Since appearing as a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2003, Jackie has performed extensively at festivals and venues across the country and beyond, in a solo capacity and with her band. 2009 saw Jackie walking away with two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards including the Horizon Award for best newcomer. Her next album, 'Hyperboreans', was followed by Jackie's first national tour of England and nominations for the 2010 Folk Awards for Folk Singer of The Year, Album of the Year and Best Traditional Track for 'Isle Of France'. In 2012 she began an extensive period of research into an area of song that is particularly close to her heart: lullabies. Collating material for England and beyond into a new collection to be house at the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library at Cecil Sharp House in London. The album 'Lullabies' was released 2013 followed by "The Spyglass & The Herringbone" in 2015. Of all the younger singers influenced by Shirley Collins, Oates is perhaps the one who most shares the gentle informal delivery that was such a key ingredient of Collins's grace and charm.
