Folk Bands and Artists
Fresh of the back of a very successful tour with folk rock legends Fairport Convention, Winter Wilson hit the road to promote their new album Far Off on the Horizon.
“The hardest punch comes from within the velvet glove....the new album from Winter Wilson is a very fine velvet glove indeed.“
Neil King, Fatea Magazine
“Wilson´s songs pull no punches when relating to the sights and sounds of everyday local life, and are complimented by Kip´s powerful and emotional voice.“ The Telegraph
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.
