What's on

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 12th WINTER WILSON

 

Now in their 8th 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 throughout 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)

‘Wilson's songs pull no punches when relating to the sights and sounds of everyday local life and are complemented by Kip's powerful and emotional voice.’ ​(The Telegraph)

‘Kip Winter's outstanding vocal talents and Dave Wilson's stunning abilities as a songwriter, composer, guitarist and singer welded seamlessly to produce a most memorable evening.’ (J​ohn Waltham, Living Tradition Magazine)

WEDNESDAY 8th APRIL THE WILDERNESS YET

This new trio combines the acclaimed talents of Rosie Hodgson, Rowan Piggott, and Philippe Barnes. Rosie, a finalist for the BBC Young Folk Award, has a voice that brings “a ruby-richness to lyrics new and old” (Folk Radio UK); Rowan is a traditional fiddler and a fine singer with a “deep understanding and feel for tradition” (FolkWords) and Philippe is a virtuosic flautist and magnificent guitarist. Independently they are consummate musicians; together they weave a tapestry of traditional and self-penned songs with a charm and familarity that is usually only found in seasoned line-ups.

‘The Wilderness Yet combine exceptional individual instrumental and vocal abilities with a deft collective touch in their arrangements of traditional and original repertoire. Not just engaging performers, they’re also folk scene activists and advocates.’

(Steve Hunt, Bodmin Folk Club)
