  • Description


    Hailed as pioneers of innovative chamber folk, O'Hooley and Tidow are back with 'The Fragile' - a collection of stories all linked by vulnerability It has been an incredible two years for O'Hooley & Tidow since the release of their debut album Silent June.

    With plaudits ranging from MOJO Top Ten Folk Album of 2010, Spiral Earth's Best Debut 2011 and Fatea Records' Innovation Award 2011, The Observer praising the album as "striking and refreshingly ambitious", a four star review by The Financial Times, describing it simply as "gorgeous" to "great stuff" by BBC Radio 2 Folk Show presenter Mike Harding.

    Silent June is certainly a hard act to follow With The Fragile the duo begin with the familiar threads of compelling songwriting, rich piano work, close, interwoven harmonies and dual voices that underpinned Silent June, yet push the boundaries of folk music even further this time.

    The Fragile marks a significant artistic development; with every inch of the creative process achieved through the symbiotic relationship between Belinda O'Hooley and Heidi Tidow and their musical and lyrical affinity.

    An album that is at once fragile and tender, yet hardy and strong.
