Winter Wilson are a folk duo from the UK featuring Kip Winter on vocals, accordion, guitar and flute with Dave Wilson on vocals, guitar and banjo. They describe their music as folk with a splash of blues, and judging by their latest album “Live & Unconventional”, which was recorded live on tour with folk rock legends Fairport Convention, that’s a pretty accurate description of their music – except that they’re also pretty funny in concert too. After eight albums, “Live & Unconventional”, their ninth album – and the follow-up to the excellent studio album “Far Off On The Horizon”, is a perfect introduction to a band who seamlessly deliver beautiful and thoughtful original songs married to strong lead vocals, fabulous harmonies, and fine musicianship with a live show that’s all tied together by a great sense of humour. Winter Wilson will be on tour across Canada this September with dates in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec. We caught up with Kit and Dave at home in the UK to chat about their music and the upcoming tour. For more information and tour dates, visit winterwilson.com. Music: “Orange Trees & Dusty Roads”, “It’ll Take A Long Time”, “Grateful For The Rain (Billy Boy)” and “I’d Rather Be Ashes Than Dust” from “Live & Unconventional” (2019, Self).
