Interpreters of everything from Massive Attack to traditional Irish ballads, O’Hooley & Tidow play Lewes’ Con Club on Saturday, March 21.
Their new album, The Hum, produced by Mercury-nominated Gerry Diver (Sam Lee’s A Ground of its Own), is receiving high praise from Radio 2, 6 Music and the national press.
The duo received a personal invitation from Billy Bragg to perform at this year’s Glastonbury Festival after he listened to The Hum.
Spokesman James Heward said: “They have the originality and skill to invite comparison with the folk scene’s most celebrated North American harmony duos, from early Simon & Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle. Lyrically and musically, Belinda and Heidi’s powerful, deeply-moving, and at times spine-tingling performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm even the hardest of hearts. O’Hooley & Tidow are regarded as lionhearted trailblazers of contemporary music and songwriting.”
