O'HOOLEY AND TIDOW, LADY MAISERY AND GRACE PETRIE

International Folk Women Day

Three of the British folk scene's finest, most formidable and forthright female acts take to the stage to celebrate International Women's Day. BBC 6 Music favourites and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2015 Best Duo nominees O'Hooley and Tidow will be joined by BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Finalists Lady Maisery and the irrepressible Leicester songwriter Grace Petrie.

A rare opportunity to experience these thought provoking, heartfelt, entertaining and enthralling women in one unrepeatable performance.

O'Hooley and Tidow: "Defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in."Independent

"Lady Maisery are women with ideas, purpose and urgency. They create powerful, enthralling work".Songlines

Grace Petrie:"A powerful new songwriting voice". Guardian
