After receiving rave reviews for their first eight studio albums, Winter Wilson went on tour with Fairport Convention and performed at Cropredy Festival. Since then, they have released two more albums, including a live album recorded on the road with Fairport.
It is in live performance where these two really excel. Now in their 9th year as full-time musicians, Kip Winter and Dave Wilson bring a sense of intimacy to every venue, blending superb, often hard-hitting original songs, stunning harmonies and musicianship with sometimes hilarious humour and tales of life on the road. Kip (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) ”simply has a voice to die for” ( John Roffey, Maverick Magazine), whilst Dave (vocals, guitar and banjo) is now rightly recognized as being amongst the top tier of British songwriters, with his songs sung in folk clubs across the UK and beyond. Together, their voices are sublime.
“In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly.” (David Aird, Chairman, Glenfarg Folk Club)
You will laugh; you may cry. You will certainly want to see them again!
