Jackie Oates is an English folk singer and fiddle player.

She was born in Congleton in Cheshire in 1983, but grew up in Staffordshire. At the age of 18, she moved to Devon to study English literature at Exeter University, and was based in Devon until 2011, when she moved to Oxford.[1] She was a member of Rachel Unthank and the Winterset between 2003 and 2007.

She was a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2003,[2] and was one of the nominees for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards "Horizon Award" in 2008,[3] going on to win that award in 2009,[4] as well as the award for best traditional track for her recording of "The Lark in the Morning".

In addition to her solo work, she has performed as part of the folk trio Wistman's Wood and sung with Morris Offspring and The Imagined Village.

Her brother is the singer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer Jim Moray, and they have guested on each other's albums.[5]
