Jackie Oates

released March 18, 2013

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. This album is a collection of songs which represent favourite lullabies and sleep songs of mine, and traditional songs which I’ve found in old song collections, books and recordings, or which have been suggested to me by friends. The songs were recorded in Bath during October 2012 and in Iceland during a trip to Reykjavik in early November the same year.
