O’Hooley and Tidow
Multi award-winning pianist Belinda O’Hooley, formerly of Rachel Unthank & The Winterset and now part of the Nic Jones Trio, is also a regular accompanist to Jackie Oates. Her duo with singer Heidi Tidow is one of the most acclaimed and unique acts on the contemporary folk scene.
The duo were hailed as the best act of the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival 2012 by The Guardian, as well as being finalists in the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013.
Their latest album The Fragile gained 4 star reviews from The Guardian, Mojo, Uncut and Songlines. The duo’s beautiful 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 BBC6 Music’s Cerys Matthews, expect an irresistible blend of thought-provoking songs, intricate harmonies and striking piano-led arrangements, prior to an eagerly anticipated third album due for release in Spring 2014.
“Belinda and Heidi’s eerie vocal harmonies weave magic” fRoots
“Blessed with sensitivity, coupled with a great sense of humour, Belinda and Heidi write creatively, expressing new ideas both lyrically and musically in a beautiful way.” Nic Jones
