O'Hooley & Tidow

Details

Much loved Yorkshire folk duo Belinda O'Hooley and Heidi Tidow have been propelled into newfound fame for penning the theme tune for hit BBC 1/HBO drama Gentleman Jack, earning them global admiration, media appearances and concerts that sell out months in advance.

Belinda and Heidi's boundless songwriting has been described by The Guardian as 'exceptional' and The Independent as 'defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in'. From an emotionally charged song about an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, to a joyous celebration of the Leeds cycling champion Beryl Burton, they explore, consider and connect subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way.

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, BBC Radio 6's Tom Robinson says ‘they sing together in the way families do. Normally, you only get that closeness in the voices with family bands like The Coppers or The Watersons'.
