“Always seriously good performers……..their vocal harmonies just ooze certainty” Dai Woosnam, Living Tradition
“In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly” David Aird, Chairman Glenfarg Folk Club
“Your writing is magnificent, your settings and playing equal to that and the both of you sing with a rare assured passion that I oft think has gone. It’s a rare gift you have – cherish it mightily.” John Tams, (Warhorse, National Theatre)
When Mike Harding dubbed Winter Wilson as one of the hardest working duos on the circuit, he’d clearly done his homework. In 2019 aside from touring around the UK, Winter Wilson performed in Australia, Spain, Belgium and Canada. They also released Live & Unconventional, the long-awaited live album, recorded on tour and at Cropredy Festival with folk rock icons Fairport Convention.
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.
