Coven is a collective of three of the British folk scene’s finest, most formidable and forthright acts: the exquisitely harmonic songwriting duo and BBC 6 Music favourites O’Hooley & Tidow; the inimitable BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning trio Lady Maisery, and the irrepressible Leicester songwriter, activist and performer Grace Petrie.
Four years ago, they got together to celebrate International Women’s Day with a series of wildly successful concerts. Since then, Coven have toured their celebratory, moving and politically galvanising show each year to sell-out crowds.
In 2018, they released Unholy Choir, an EP of “potency and purpose” (Louder Than War).
Coven’s 2019 tour includes six of their favourite venues. Advance booking highly recommended.
O’Hooley & Tidow – “Defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in.” The Independent
Grace Petrie – “A powerful new songwriting voice.” The Guardian
Lady Maisery – “With purpose and urgency, they create powerful, enthralling work” Songlines
