WINTER WILSON – Saturday 24 November 2018

Following on from their 2018 tour with the legendary Fairport Convention we are delighted to welcome Winter Wilson to the mill.

Winter Wilson’s current tour showcases their latest album “Far Off on the Horizon”, the follow up to “Ashes & Dust”. Their 2014 release – “Cutting Free” – made the Daily Telegraph’s ten recommended folk albums of the year.

Having honed their craft during many years as semi-professional musicians, the duo went full time in 2012 and haven’t looked back since. They have a fine repertoire of self-penned songs, telling stories of everyday life which often reflect the bigger picture of this life we lead. (“Songs for local heroes,” as one punter said.)

Kip Winter (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) is one of the finest singers on the circuit, expressing power and emotion in equal measure “from melting to belting”.

Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar and banjo) is amongst the top tier of British song writers, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats”.

But it’s in live performance that Winter Wilson really excel, bringing a sense of intimacy to every stage, welcoming audiences into their world, mixing songs with stories of life on the road. “This isn’t a performance – it’s a domestic!”

Tight harmonies, killer songs and a lot of fun – that’s Winter Wilson.
