POPULAR DUO Winter Wilson are returning to Uppermill this month following a fantastic summer of festival appearances.
On Wednesday, September 30, the pair will take to the stage at the Cross Keys Folk Club.
Known across the UK acoustic music scene for their original songs and spontaneous humour, Lincolnshire-based Winter Wilsonare rapidly building a loyal following.
Their music covers a range of styles, mainly with a folk-blues feel, and their live performances bring passion and humour to every gig.
Kip Winter has sung everything from jazz to opera, but is at her best and happiest when singing folk and blues.
And Dave Wilson is recognised as one of the best songwriters on the scene, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats” including Vin Garbutt.
After playing together for almost twenty years Kip and Dave took the plunge in 2012, giving up full-time jobs to make their living from their music.
They have since established their own cottage industry, writing songs, recording, designing album covers, posters, tee shirts, websites, promotion, setting up tours and spending most of the year living in a camper van.
As a result their reputation has blossomed, seeing them playing clubs and festivals all over the UK.
“Cutting Free”, the latest of the duo’s six critically-acclaimed albums, has received excellent reviews and air play across the UK and beyond.
And it was recently selected by the Daily Telegraph as one of its top “10 fine folk albums for Summer 2014”.
The couple’s next album ‘Ashes and Dust’ is due for release in March 2016.
The Cross Keys Folk Club meets every Wednesday from 8.30pm in the historic Cross Keys Inn on Running Hill Gate, Uppermill.
