Yorkshire folk duo, Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow are on a tour with a difference this autumn to celebrate their love of real ale.

The Summat’s Brewin’ tour sees the pair playing 30 gigs in 30 real ale venues.

With a personal invite from Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury, sessions on BBC 6 Music and Radio 2, their album The Hum being named as one of Mojo’s Top 10 Folk Albums of 2014 and a nomination for Best Duo at this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, O’Hooley & Tidow have had a memorable year.

Known for their exquisite harmonies, sublime musicality and cheeky northern banter, this tour sees the duo perform a new show of contemporary and traditional drinking songs in celebration of real ale, real music and real people in really intimate venues.

They will be at Shakespeare’s in Sheffield on Sunday, 25th October.
