One of Scotland’s most celebrated folk singer-songwriters, Siobhan Miller embarks upon an intimate trio tour this autumn joined by two of Scotland's finest musicians, Innes White on guitar and Charlie Stewart on fiddle. This acoustic setting is the perfect opportunity to see Siobhan's richly celebrated Scottish folk songs up close and personal.

Siobhan's musical prowess has earned her numerous accolades, including four BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards' Scots Singer of the Year titles and a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track. Her discography boasts five solo releases, all of which have been shortlisted for BBC Alba STMA Album of the Year, including her latest album, Bloom.

An out and out, freewheeling celebration of much-loved Scottish songs, Bloom deftly balances a love of traditional song with modern influences. Joyous and cathartic, it adds to the wide-ranging accolades and radio-play enjoyed throughout Siobhan's solo

Having grown up in Scotland's rich folk scene, Siobhan has been a regular performer at Glasgow's Celtic Connections festival, where she was Artistic Director for the 2016 Opening Concert and featured amidst the star-studded Transatlantic Sessions line-up in 2022, duetting with Paul Brady and Sarah Jarosz.

Siobhan's unique vocal style has been honed through collaborations with many of Scotland's top musicians, including Eddi Reader, Kris Drever & Phil Cunningham. She has also made guest appearances with the National Theatre of Scotland, spent a season on Broadway, returned to the US for a month-long residency in Boston's Majestic Theatre for Brian O'Donovan's Celtic Christmas, and can be spotted on US/UK TV drama Outlander.

This is a rare opportunity to see Siobhan Miller in intimate surrounds, and experience her stunning vocals and lyrical songs in a truly special setting.

Saturday 11th November - O'Hooley & Tidow

Doors 7:30 Start 8:00pm


Join much loved folk duo O'Hooley & Tidow as they perform their critically acclaimed new album 'Cloudheads' in the lovely old village hall at Hepworth. 

Please note: This concert is likely to sell out so please purchase your tickets well in advance.

Belinda and Heidi have been propelled into newfound fame for penning the theme tune to Sally Wainwright’s hit BBC1/HBO drama ‘Gentleman Jack’, earning them global admiration, an acting role for Belinda on the iconic TV drama Happy Valley, Radio 4 Woman’s Hour and concerts that sell out months in advance.

Belinda and Heidi’s boundless songwriting has been described by The Guardian as ‘exceptional’ and The Independent as ‘defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in.’ Their first full studio album in seven years; ‘Cloudheads’ delves into the mindscapes, passions and inner worlds of two highly individual autistic women; Belinda and Heidi. Moving, melodic, dramatic and tender, from stories of parenthood, the call of a song thrush, to a portrait of the last days of a touching relationship between their neighbour Matthew and his beloved Alsatian, Ted, and even a collaboration with Gentleman Jack herself, Suranne Jones on ‘The Ballad of Anne and Ann’, they explore, consider and connect subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way.

Having the originality and skill to invite comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, 6 Music’s Tom Robinson says ‘They sing together in the way families do. Normally, you only get that closeness in the voices with family bands like The Coppers or The Watersons.’

‘I have just listened to your track, ‘Beryl’, with tears in my eyes! It’s beautiful and brilliant.’ Maxine Peake 

Nominated four times for BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Best Duo’.

Bryony Griffiths & Alice Jones

Doors 7:30 Start 8:00pm

Come and celebrate the release of ‘Wesselbobs’, Bryony and Alice’s brand new album of Yorkshire winter songs and tunes.


Hailing from West Yorkshire, Bryony & Alice are both long-time purveyors of English folk music, united by a fascination with local folk song and tune collections.


In 2019 they came together as a powerful new duo and have taken the folk scene by storm. Featuring fiddle, harmonium, tenor guitar, body percussion and intricate vocals in their distinctive regional accents, they combine their respect and understanding of tradition with their own contemporary style of performance, imparting their extensive knowledge of the material with wit and humour to present a unique repertoire of harmony, heritage and northern banter.


Their debut duo album, ‘A Year Too Late and a Month Too Soon’, researched and recorded in and out of lockdowns and released in 2022, showcased their fresh and masterful interpretations of these treasured old songs, garnering 5 star reviews, global radio play and live radio performances including Radio 2’s Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe and Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.


The new album, ‘Wesselbobs’ is a collection of winter songs and tunes associated with Yorkshire and includes unearthed traditional gems and unique local versions of better-known seasonal songs. 

Wessel-bobs, Wassail-bobs or Wesley-bobs were a kind of decorated, evergreen bough built around a spherical frame, carried by Wassailers or carol singers in the 18 and 1900s, mostly in West Yorkshire.

‘Wesselbobs’ is available to pre-order at and will be officially released on November 1st 2023. 

"Straight up, beautiful and bold folk singing" Mark Radcliffe - BBC Radio 2


"a sparkling tribute to Yorkshire's folk heritage" Rachel Cunniffe - Songlines


“Well-known on the grassroots scene for multifarious adventures with different outfits, this pair pitch together their fiddle and guitar and passionate vocals with winning vitality on a vividly enticing bunch of traditional music from their home county of Yorkshire. No fancy frills here – we get songs of fratricide, coalmining, betrayal, cockfighting and drinking, delivered in all their raw glory. Honest, wholesome and thoroughly enjoyable.” Colin Irwin - Mojo
