Roots pacesetters lined-up

O'Hooley & Tidow
O'Hooley & Tidow

With a personal invite from Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury, sessions on 6 Music and Radio 2, a five star live review and feature in The Guardian, a Mojo magazine Folk Album of the Year award for groundbreaking album The Hum, and a nomination for ‘Best Duo’ in this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, O’Hooley & Tidow are regarded as trailblazers of contemporary music and songwriting.

There’s a chance to catch them when they appear at Steve Tilston’s next Trades Roots spot at the club, in Holme Street, Hebden Bridge, on Thursday, March 12 (8pm, tickets £10 and £12).

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, Belinda and Heidi’s powerful, deeply moving, and at times spine-tingling performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm even the hardest of heart.
