Solo Piano Performance of Inversions

Belinda O’Hooley

Belinda O’Hooley is an exceptionally gifted pianist, singer, songwriter and composer and has become renowned for her highly individual, emotional, yet sensitive musicality.

She is half of four time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award 'Best Duo' nominees O’Hooley & Tidow, alongside her wife Heidi Tidow, together described by The Guardian as 'exceptional songwriters'.

Inversions showcases Belinda’s abilities as a composer and pianist with many of the piano pieces inspired by the songs and tunes her father inherited from a long line of male musicians in the hills of the West coast of rural Ireland. With the passing of her father in 2017, Belinda - the first woman to be handed the tradition - has found the freedom to express the music of her ancestors in her very own, unconventional way, evolving and migrating into something you could describe as an inversion: a reversal of the norm.

Gently nurtured, produced and recorded by Heidi Tidow at MOMA Wales, the mountains, valleys and landscapes of Snowdonia also provide the backdrop to a trio of compositions; each celebrating a deep love of the nature and wildlife of this breathtaking part of Wales.

Inversions encapsulates the essence of an artist truly at one with her instrument.
