Jackie Oates and John Spiers (livestream)

Streamed live from Norden Farm.

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.

John and Jackie, already admiring of each other’s work, met through the vibrant folk scene of Oxford and its surrounding villages, after Jackie moved to the area. They began playing music together shortly after, through regular appearances at Nettlebed Folk Club, special festival sets, a live set for BBC Radio 3 and John’s contribution to Jackie's seventh album The Joy of Living.

WHY? Jackie has won BBC Folk Awards as has John who was a key member of the renowned folk superband – Bellowhead

Pinocchio

The third in a series of three shows coming to the Norden Farm stage for Christmas 2020.

The objects of a carpenter’s workshop bring to life the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father. A one man show starring Steve Tiplady, as Geppetto.

Pinocchio is carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. An element of improvisation makes each performance unique to its audience.

Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it’s inventive, visually and verbally witty with a big heart.
