Day: Saturday

Much loved Yorkshire folk duo Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow, were propelled into newfound fame for penning the theme tune to Sally Wainwright’s hit BBC1/HBO drama Gentleman Jack, earning them global admiration and even an acting role for Belinda on the iconic TV drama Happy Valley. Belinda and Heidi’s boundless songwriting has long been acclaimed though, described by The Guardian as ”exceptional” and The Independent as “defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in.” They a knack for exploring, considering and connecting subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way; moving, melodic, dramatic and tender. Having the originality and skill to invite comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, 6 Music’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.”
