OHooley and Tidow have forged an enviable reputation in the UK since their formation in 2009. Now extending their reach around Europe, they are accomplished interpreters of everything from Massive Attack to traditional Irish ballads, but it's their own boundless songwriting and exquisite harmonies that truly shine. They have the originality and skill to invite comparison with celebrated North American harmony duos, from early Simon and Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle. Lyrically and musically, Belinda and Heidis powerful, deeply moving, and at times spine-tingling performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm even the hardest of heart.

 

Yorkshire women,  OHooley and Tidow, who are partners in life as well as work, are based in Huddersfield, but Belinda OHooley comes from a long line of South Sligo traditional musicians and includes Tony Howley and Tommy Fleming among her relatives. She came to prominence as a member of Rachel and Becky Unthanks Winterset, before joining forces with Heidi.

 

 

The duos third album The Hum, is receiving four star reviews from the national press and radio.  Independent On Sunday, described their new album as defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in. The album was Mojos album of the month and BBC Scotland selected it as album of the week. Following the rapturous response to their performance in 2012, when The Guardian described them as the Best Act of the weekend, they return to Cambridge Folk Festival this year, having also played Glastonbury. They have just announced shows in Whelans Dublin and Spirit Store, Dundalk for the last weekend in January.
