Winter Wilson

Saturday, 17th November 2018 : 7pm


Music lovers are in for a treat, as True Blue Music bring top duo Winter Wilson to The Hop Barn, Hockerwood Lane, Southwell on Saturday 17th November. To coincide with the Winter tour, Winter Wilson released their eighth studio album, ‘Far Off on the Horizon’, another fine collection of original songs on subjects as diverse as migration, old age, young love and Australian weather! And once again the critics loved it. “It’s always a scary time when a new album goes out for review,” said Dave, “and there’s a huge sigh of relief when the reviews are good. But it’s the live performances that we really love best, and fortunately audiences seem to enjoy them too.” Indeed they do, and as a result the pair were recently voted runners up in the "Best Duo" category in the national Folking.com awards. "We were thrilled," commented Kip. "The shortlist included some folks we really admire, so to be voted number 2 by the general public was a real honour." Both multi-instrumentalists and fine singers, the couple intersperse great songs and stunning harmonies with often hilarious stories of life on the road and spontaneous humour. "We're very aware that we're in the business of entertainment,"said Dave. "Some of the songs can be quite hard hitting, so we know it's important to lighten things up in between. Also we both like having a giggle, and luckily our audiences tend to join in." This will, however, be a very special date for the pair, as their first ever appearance as a duo was in Upton. "We were living in Newark, "Kip told us "and the band we'd been playing in had recently folded, so we were really pleased to be offered a duo gig at the Cross Keys. The rest is history."
