Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow are no strangers to Hitchin Folk Club – they’ve shared the bill in the past, and performed as part of other bands, and they’ve loved the experience.
But when they step up at the Sun Hotel on Sunday, March 22, it will be their first time headlining at the iconic venue.
The duo enthused: “It’s a great, very welcoming club and this will be our first time headlining a show there. We’re really excited about it.”
As O’Hooley and Tidow, they have been building a name for themselves as writers and performers of contemporary folk songs that connect to the times we live in.
Heidi said: “We are known for our close harmonies, centred around Belinda’s piano playing, thought- provoking lyrics and being a bit daft at times in between songs.”
