Their line up is full of first rate musicians and performers, and they are fronted by a double-edged powerhouse of John Kirkpatrick and our dear friend and patron, John Tams.

O’Hooley & Tidow

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.’ Their song ‘Gentleman Jack’ features as the closing theme song for BBC/HBO drama series Gentleman Jack. Quite simply, they are brilliant!
