WITH a personal invite from Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury, sessions on 6 Music and Radio 2 and five star reviews, the songwriting, voice and piano partnership of Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow is regarded as one of British folk music’s mightiest combinations.

And the good news is, they have a gig at The Ale House in Colwall.

A spokesman said: “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.’

“From an emotionally charged song about an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, to a joyous celebration of the Leeds cycling champion Beryl Burton, they explore, consider and connect subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way.”

The spokesman added: “They sing together in the way families do.”

The date for the diary is April 28.
