The performance by the BBC Folk Awards 2015 finalists will mark The Oval Tavern’s beer festival launch night.

The ticket price – £10 – includes a free pint.

The Yorkshire folk duo, Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow are travelling the land in Birgitte, their trusty old camper van, to play 30 micro gigs in 30 real ale venues.

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

With a personal invite from Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury, sessions on 6 Music and Radio 2, a five-star live review and feature in The Guardian, one of Mojo’s Top 10 folk albums of 2014 for groundbreaking album “The Hum”, and a nomination for Best Duo in this year’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, O’Hooley & Tidow are regarded as “one of British folk’s mightiest combinations” (Mojo)
