Much loved Yorkshire folk duo Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow have suddenly been propelled into newfound fame for penning the theme tune for Sally Wainwright’s hit BBC1/HBO drama ‘Gentleman Jack’, earning them global admiration, appearances on TV, and Radio 4 Woman’s Hour.
Matthew Harrison-Lord, Brighouse Arts Festival Director, said “I cannot believe we have managed to book O’Hooley & Tidow for their 10 year celebration concert as they gain international fame from the Gentleman Jack series. Once again, we have managed to bring huge acts to Brighouse – a town that normally gets forgotten about when it comes to the big artists and acts”
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.
John Buxton, Arts for Brighouse Charity Trustee, said “We know and love their work as local Calderdale artists, it’s great to see them catapult into fame because of Anne Lister and Shibden Hall’s history. Brighouse’s direct connection is that Anne Walker is buried at Lightcliffe, part of Brighouse and Lower Calderdale”
Having the originality and skill to invite comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, from early Simon and Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle, 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 TheCoppers or The Watersons.’
10 Years of O’Hooley & Tidow, Friday 2nd October 2020, 7:30pm, St Martins Parish Church, Brighouse, Calderdale, West Yorkshire. £20.
‘I have just listened to your track, ‘Beryl’, with tears in my eyes! It’s beautiful and brilliant.’ Maxine Peake

Calderdale Flood Appeal Launched
The Community Foundation for Calderdale has launched an appeal for people to give to a fund to help those affected by the devastating floods on 9th February.
Storm Ciara created significant damage through severe flooding across the Calder Valley, where a month’s rain fell in just 12 hours. Days later Storm Dennis swept over the flood-hit towns still recovering from the disaster. This is the third time in eight years that our resilient community has been devastated by flooding. It is estimated that 500 homes, 400 businesses, eight schools and two care homes have been affected. We are leading the response to support the local community.
The Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC) is a registered charity with 30 years experience of fundraising and giving out grants to people in need across the Calder Valley. We have led the response to all of the significant floods in the area. We are awarding emergency grants to householders, charities and businesses affected. More information will be posted on our website and on social media.
The financial support that we will be offering the communities affected will help people to get back on their feet after the devastating impact of the floods. The more funds that we raise through this appeal will enable us to have a greater impact.
