Having honed their craft during many years as semi-professional musicians Kip and Dave went full time in 2012 and haven't looked back since. They have a fine repertoire of self-penned songs, telling stories of everyday life which often reflect the bigger picture of this life we lead ("Songs for local heroes", as one punter said).

Winter Wilson's last tour showcased their latest album "Ashes and Dust", the follow up to "Cutting Free" which made the Daily Telegraph's ten recommended folk albums for Summer 2014.

Kip Winter (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) is one of the finest singers on the circuit, expressing power and emotion in equal measure "from melting to belting".

Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar and banjo) is amongst the top tier of British song writers, with his songs covered by some of folk's "greats".

But it's in live performances that Winter Wilson really excel, bringing a sense of intimacy to every stage, welcoming audiences into their world, mixing songs with stories of life on the road. "This isn't a performance - it's a domestic!".

Tight harmonies, killer songs and a lot of fun - that's Winter Wilson.

Come along and enjoy a really entertaining evening in the company of two very fine entertainers.

"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)
