O'Hooley & Tidow

Supported by Nigel Parsons

A very welcome return visit from a duo who packed the theatre last time they came!

Nominees in the Best Duo category in the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and winners of the Mojo Folk Album of the year in 2014,  Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow have become this year’s “must-see” act.  

Belinda and Heidi’s boundless songwriting has been described by The Guardian as ‘exceptional’ and The Independent as ‘defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in.’ From an emotionally charged song about an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, to a joyous celebration of the Leeds cycling champion Beryl Burton, they explore, consider and connect subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way.

Having the originality and skill to invite comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, from early Simon and Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle, 6 Music’s Tom Robinson says ‘They sing together in the way families do. Normally, you only get that closeness in the voices with family bands like The Coppers or The Watersons.’

Our opening spot will be Nigel Parsons, a talented Sheffield-based singer-songwriter who performs his own songs, friends' songs and imaginative covers of some of his favourites on guitar and stomp box.
