describing their songwriting as "exceptional", the national press labelled Belinda O'Hooley and Heidi Tidow as "England's answer to the McGarrigles". They are among this year's BBC Folk Award nominees for "Best Duo" and their fine harmony singing is beautifully accompanied by Belinda on piano. After a 5 year absence from the Club, they return with songs that are "defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political". £10
