Belinda O'Hooley plays Wadsworth
Thursday, 9 February 2023
Wadsworth Community Centre hosts a rare solo performance from Belinda O'Hooley. Belinda is an exceptionally gifted pianist, singer, song writer and composer and has become renowned for her highly individual, emotional, yet sensitive musicality. She is half of four-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo nominees O'Hooley & Tidow alongside her wife Heidi Tidow; together described by The Guardian as 'exceptional songwriters.' Their song 'Gentleman Jack' features as the closing theme song for Sally Wainwright's BBC/HBO drama series Gentleman Jack.
Belinda's inventive, minimalist, sometimes flamboyant accompanying of folk luminaries includes Rufus Wainwright, Nic Jones, Jackie Oates and the Mercury nominated; Rachel Unthank and The Winterset.
Her album 'Inversions' showcases Belinda's abilities as a composer and pianist with many of the piano pieces inspired by the songs and tunes her father inherited from a long line of male musicians in the hills of the West coast of rural Ireland.
You might have seen Belinda in her role as DCS Liz Thornton in the final series of BAFTA winning drama 'Happy Valley'.
