THIS WEEK...

we welcome    Winter Wilson    as our guest!!

Winter Wilson are back on the road, following a hugely successful UK tour with folk-rock legends Fairport Convention.
Kip and Dave really excel in live performances, interspersing great songs, stunning harmonies and fine musicianship with often hilarious tales of life on the road.

Kip Winter learned to sing harmonies on long family car journeys. She learned piano from age 9, bought a second-hand flute when living in France in 1980 and has subsequently "pootled"
on guitar, tenor guitar, bass, piano accordion and tenor ukulele... but mainly she loves to sing - anything from classical and jazz to soul, but especially folk and blues.

Dave Wilson bought his first guitar aged 17 and taught himself to play from the David Bowie song book.
He started writing songs regularly when he began attending Boston Folk Club in the early 1980s and hasn't looked back since.
Dave's songs have been covered by many musicians, the best known being Storm Around Tumbledown, which has been recorded by Vin Garbutt and Anthony John Clarke amongst others.

"A sublime collection of tracks to kick off the new year in style. Well-balanced, strong songs delivered with care,
and by people that are passionate about their craft. Lovely."
   -    Grem Devlin, Living Tradition Magazine


"Dave Wilsonís songs pull no punches when relating to the sights and sounds of everyday local life,
and are complimented by Kipís powerful and emotional voice."
   -    Daily Telegraph, January 2018
