The witching hour is almost upon us – there’s a Coven being convened in Hitchin on Sunday night and you don’t have to be a mistress of the dark arts to be invited.
Coven 2016 is a collaboration of three acts who are coming together to mark International Women’s Day, which was celebrated around the world on Tuesday.
Summoning you along to the Sun Hotel are O’Hooley & Tidow, Lady Maisery and Grace Petrie, all on stage together, playing their own songs then finishing both sets performing together.
Hitchin Folk Club’s Kieron Jones said this week: “This is really going to be something special.
“O’Hooley & Tidow are regarded as trailblazers of contemporary music and songwriting.
