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 album ‘WinterFolk Vol 1′, produced with BBC 2 Folk Award winner Ben Walker.

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 soulful performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm the hardest of hearts.
