Event details

Yorkshire duo O’Hooley and Tidow are a folk force to be reckoned with. 

Characterised by strong harmonies and humorous, heart-touching tales of the exceptional and everyday, they are cited as ‘England's answer to the McGarrigles’ (the Guardian) and are widely recognised as ‘one of British folk music’s mightiest combinations’ (Mojo).

Join us for an entertaining performance by the artists who gave us the closing theme to Sally Wainwright’s BBC/HBO series Gentleman Jack.

 ‘Defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in’ (The Independent)
