Since her departure from the Unthanks, the stark, haunting piano arrangements Belinda O’Hooley brought to the Mercury nominated album ‘The Bairns’ have evolved and migrated into rippling neo-classical chamber folk songs. Here with Yorkshire singer-songwriter Heidi Tidow, these dapper suited gentlewomen bring their intensely beautiful, poetic and wryly observant take on the human condition to the contemporary folk scene. Their debut album is Silent June.
Touring the UK in November with the duo will be special guest Lucy Ward, a very talented and charismatic young singer-songwriter from Derby, she was a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards last year. Definitely someone to watch out for.
