"England’s answer to the McGarrigles"  ★★★★★ The Guardian  

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, O’Hooley & Tidow are regarded as ‘one of British folk’s mightiest combinations’ (Mojo). They return to Cambridge Junction following two storming sets at Cambridge Folk Festival.

Their critically acclaimed new album Shadows is the follow up to the groundbreaking The Hum, which earned them a place in Mojo’s Top 10 Folk Albums of 2014 and a nomination for ‘Best Duo’ in last year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

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 heart.

‘Formidably brilliant.’
Independent

‘Brave, beautiful and full of love.’
Martin Simpson

‘In the leading ranks of the new wave of folk music aristocracy.’
Tom Robinson, 6 Music
