Jackie Oates: Lace Tellings

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Jackie Oates presents ‘Lace Tellings’, a play about the lace makers of Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire.

The project is the culmination of an 18 month long musical residency at the Museum of English Rural Life with EFDSS, and supported by Help Musicians.

The play explores the long lost tradition of lace telling - songs sung by the lace making girls to both learn the intricacies of the task and as an outlet for the tribulations of the time.

Jackie will be joined by very special guests John Spiers and Mike Cosgrave.
