Hailed as the best act of the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival 2012 by The Guardian and finalists in the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for ‘Best Duo’; the multi award-winning Belinda O’Hooley (Rachel Unthank & The Winterset, 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’. Their 2010 debut album ‘Silent June‘ received widespread acclaim and was listed in Mojo Magazine’s top 10 Folk Albums of 2010.
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 and 6 Music’s Cerys Matthews; expect an irresistible blend of thought-provoking songs, intricate harmonies and striking piano-led arrangements.
‘Marvellous, packed full of gems’ - Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music
‘Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow return with a set that shows even greater bravery and far more confident vocal work.’ – Robin Denselow, The Guardian
‘…plaintive, inviting, disquieting, mysterious, harmonic, austere, beautiful, oblique and sing-along.’
