Winter Wilson’s current tour showcases 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.

Having honed their craft during many years as semi-professional musicians, the duo went full time in 2012 and hasn’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).

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 songwriters, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats”.

But it’s in live performance 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.

Kip Winter:
Learned piano from age 9. Bought a second-hand flute for Fr400 when living in France in 1980 and has subsequently “pootled” on guitar, tenor guitar, bass, piano accordion and tenor ukulele. But mainly she loves to sing - anything from classical and jazz to soul, but especially folk and blues.

Dave Wilson:
Bought his first (Yamaha) guitar aged 17 and taught himself to play from the David Bowie songbook. He started writing songs regularly when he began attending Boston Folk Club in the early 1980s (to make up for not knowing any folk songs) and hasn’t looked back since.

Dave’s songs have been covered by musicians all over the UK and beyond, the best known being Storm Around Tumbledown, which has been recorded by Vin Garbutt and Anthony John Clarke amongst others.

Doors open 7pm.
Performance starts at 7:30pm, you will get a seat if you arrive close to 7pm.

The hall is situated up the long driveway, directly next to Domain Park, and there is plenty of well-lit off street parking.

Door sales cash only. Please note there is no Eftpos available on site.

Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake available during the break, also cash bar facilities for cold refreshments throughout the night.
