It’s a pleasure to be a part of the Colne Valley’s ever-changing industrial and craft heritage. The climate and terrain of the valley shaped the early years of its history and now the landscape and weather-beaten weavers cottages and mills house a growing community of artisan and craft producers, supported by a network of independent, specialist outlets.

O'Hooley & Tidow Revisit / Shadows & Cloudheads

Join much loved Yorkshire folk duo O’Hooley & Tidow as they revisit two of their critically acclaimed albums for one night only as a special invitation to celebrate Dark Woods Coffee 10 Year Anniversary.

Shadows (2016) received 5 star reviews in The Guardian for the album and the album launch. Described as ‘England’s answer to the McGarrigles’ the album received high praise across the board with songs such as Beryl, Colne Valley Hearts, Made in England and The Pixie.

Cloudheads (2023) is the duo’s latest album, described as “distinctive, inventive and exceptional” by the AMUK. Their song The Ballad of Anne & Ann is a duet with BAFTA winning actress and singer Suranne Jones. The album has garnered much interest partly due to the subject matter as it tackles hefty topics such as autism, the life of Polly Nicholls who met her demise by a serial killer, and the power women can have if given enough space.

This event is likely to sell out, so book early to avoid disappointment.

The venue has full wheelchair access.

Georgie Buchanan & Alana Middleton Dark Woods @ 5pm Georgie Buchanan (harp, voice) & Alana Middleton (fiddle, voice) are a dynamic folk duo based in Leeds.
