WinterFolk: O’Hooley & TidowFri 30th November 2018
Feel the first icy fingers of the winter in this re-imagining of the season of goodwill from two of our most loved and respected singer songwriters. Drawing heavily on their 2017 album of the same name, WinterFolk will take us on a seasonal journey more dark and Dickens than happy and Hollywood, but eventually warming the heart. Look out for hot toddies this night!
O'Hooley & Tidow
Join ‘one of British Folk's mightiest combinations' (MOJO), O'Hooley & Tidow, for an evening of beautifully performed original, contemporary, and traditional winter songs from their latest album 'WinterFolk Vol 1', produced with BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Ben Walker.
Nominated this year for the fourth time in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and described by the Guardian as ‘exceptional songwriters’, Belinda and Heidi’s powerful, deeply moving, and soulful performances are infused with an
honesty and empathy that will disarm the hardest of hearts.
