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
