Coven is the collective of three of the British folk scene’s finest, most formidable and forthright female acts; the exquisitely harmonic songwriting duo and BBC 6 Music favourites O’Hooley & Tidow; the enchanting BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Finalists Lady Maisery, and the irrepressible Leicester songwriter, activist and performer Grace Petrie. Three years ago, they got together to celebrate International Women’s Day with a series of three concerts. Since then, the tour has extended year on year, with 2017 seeing them release Unholy Choir,; an EP of the songs the group has collaborated on.
O’Hooley & Tidow – “Defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in.’” Independent.
Grace Petrie – “A powerful new songwriting voice.” Guardian
