Moira+I went to see Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow last night at the Bristol Folk House. To be honest, I didn’t know much about their music before yesterday – I knew that O’Hooley had been with Rachel Unthank+The Winterset (not a bad pedigree!) and that the pair had been nominated for “Best Duo” in the recent BBC Folk Awards.Anyway, they were wonderful!
The blurb on their website said: “expect an irresistible blend of thought-provoking songs, intricate harmonies and striking arrangements, tempered by cheeky Northern banter”.
They were all of that... and more.
