BBC Folk Awards Best Duo Nominees O’Hooley & Tidow come to Stratford-Upon-Avon
Hailed as the best act of the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival 2012 by The Guardian; and nominated for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Duo’, the multi award-winning Belinda O’Hooley (The Unthanks, Nic Jones Trio, Jackie Oates) and Heidi Tidow are now one of the most popular and unique acts on the contemporary folk scene. Their latest album ‘The Fragile’ garnered 4 star reviews from The Guardian, Mojo, Uncut and Songlines, and was described by The Independent as a ‘must-buy’.
As part of their extensive tour, O’Hooley & Tidow will be appearing at the vibrant Stratford-Upon-Avon Folk Club on Friday 25th January with support from rising local talent Lilly Shickle. The duo’s beautifully unusual songs touch on every human emotion; drawing on love and loss, dark and humorous folk tales and everything from the invisibility of the elderly, through to ecology, rumour-mongering and the global economy. Championed by folk icon Nic Jones, Mike Harding and 6 Music’s Cerys Matthews; expect an irresistible blend of thought-provoking songs, intricate harmonies and striking arrangements, tempered by cheeky Northern banter.
