Glee Club hosts top British folk duo

Belinda O’Hooley (The Unthanks, Nic Jones Trio) and Heidi Tidow are a must-see British folk act.

They return to play Glee Club Nottingham, on Friday, March 14.

Since the 2012 release of their second album The Fragile, Yorkshire duo O’Hooley And Tidow have become a much-discussed act for their emotionally charged performances.

This earned them a nomination for Best Duo in the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, with The Guardian hailing them as ‘The Best Act of Cambridge Folk Festival’.

As well as high praise for their beautiful, interweaving harmonies and sublime musicality, they are acknowledged as one of the strongest songwriting partnerships on the contemporary folk scene. New album The Hum, produced by Mercury-nominated Gerry Diver, reveals the pulsing undercurrent of optimism, grit and mettle in migrating people, the oppressed, and the disenfranchised.

Belinda and Heidi’s powerful, thought-provoking and deeply moving performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm even the hardest of hearts.

Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are £10 and are available from the box office on 0871 472 0400.

n A Thousand Enemies, Theia, Crucial Domination and Persona will be performing at The Victoria Inn in Derby on March 15.
