Winter Wilson have often been described as “one of the hardest-working duos on the UK folk scene”, and not without good reason.
Since becoming full-time musicians in 2012, the couple have played folk clubs, theatres, arts centres and festivals worldwide, making friends and fans along the way. Kip Winter (vocals, flute, piano accordion, guitar) “simply has a voice to die for” (John Roffee, Maverick Magazine), whilst Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar, banjo) is now widely recognised as one of the UK’s very best contemporary folk and blues songwriters, with his songs sung in folk clubs the world over.
Together they produce a unique sound, blending truly stunning harmonies with subtle, skilful musicianship. Their songs are beautiful, often hard hitting and just occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, covering a wide range of styles and subject matter, but always delivered with passion. In between the songs it’s another matter entirely.
Kip and Dave are a couple in life as well as on stage and it shows. Their personal rapport translates to a relaxed, self-effacing stage presence where the audience is invited to join, not only in the songs, but also in the stories and banter in between.
