The album is described as reflecting on "some of the darker hued aspects of yuletide, considering the season in an alternative, real way, from the absence or loss of children, to domestic violence at Christmas, from global warming to poverty, religion, displacement, migration and loneliness".
O'Hooley & Tidow were nominated for Best Duo at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. O'Hooley & Tidow. O'Hooley & Tidow at 2014 Cambridge Folk Festival. Background information.

WinterFolk Volume 1, the sixth album by the Yorkshire-based folk music duo O'Hooley & Tidow, was released on 3 November 2017 on the No Masters label and distributed by Proper Music . WinterFolk Volume 1 succeeds in uniting these factors while never sidestepping the important and often unsavoury social issues that come to the fore in the holiday season. Much more than just a stocking filler, this is an album of frosted beauty with a heart as warm as a coal fire.
And that is why the idea of a ‘winter album’ rather than a ‘Christmas album’ is appealing: it allows the artist to focus on the feelings associated with this time of year without being subject to its limiting factors.
