Folk duo head back to Cornwall
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Belinda O'Hooley and Heidi Tidow appeared at Looe Music Festival this summer as well as at Glastonbury, the Green Man Festival and Larmer Tree.
Their stellar summer was capped when the Guardian named their set at the 50th Cambridge Folk Festival as the highlight of the entire weekend, while they have also appeared on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Radio 3's The Verb, Mark Radcliffe's BBC Radio 2 Folk Show and Cerys Matthews's 6 Music Show.
Now they're heading to St Just and back to Cornwall as one of the most exciting acts that exists in folk in 2014.
While their latest gig is some way from The Cormorant and other hotels in Fowey, the fact the duo are returning to Cornwall this Sunday speaks volumes about the Looe Music Festival.
The pair said the way their emotionally charged performances were received in Cornwall made them keen to return. But it's not just in the Duchy that their performances have been acclaimed. The Guardian said the pair are "stunning and delightfully unconventional" while MOJO magazine said their performance in Looe was "plaintive, inviting, disquieting, mysterious, harmonic, austere, beautiful, oblique and sing-a-long".
It's obvious to us from this news that Cornwall is a vibrant place for music, so keep an eye out for news of other upcoming gigs!
