13th April – Winter Wilson

Winter Wilson is one of the hardest working and most talented duos on the UK acoustic music scene and happily, Irvine Folk Club is included in their current touring schedule. The husband and wife team top the bill at the Irvine Club on Wednesday 13th April.
The duo are back by popular demand. The fine singing, stunning harmonies and off-the-wall humour of Winter Wilson on their debut appearance at the Irvine Club ensured that they would be back. Kip Winter and Dave Wilson turned full-time professional musicians in 2012 and their busy touring schedule indicates that it was the right choice.
Kip’s nomadic upbringing saw her being raised in Holland, Germany, England, Scotland and France. She loves singing anything, but especially folk and blues. Kip learned to sing harmonies on long car journeys back to the Outer Hebrides in the family car and as well as having a fine voice, she plays Accordion, Guitar and Flute.
Lincolnshire man Dave bought his first Yamaha Guitar as a 17 year old and taught himself to play by studying The David Bowie Songbook. As well as having an excellent voice, Dave plays Guitar and Banjo. He is also recognised as an accomplished contemporary acoustic songwriter whose songs are much in demand.
Together, Winter Wilson have released seven CDs including a song on their Cutting Free release which was written especially for Kip’s Mum by their good friend the late and much missed Nick Keir.
Winter Wilson is a class act. Their faultless harmonies seem effortless and added to their well-chosen repertoire and easy on-stage chemistry all add up to a duo well worth a listen. To hear Winter Wilson be at Irvine Folk Club on Wednesday 13th April for 8pm in Vineburgh Community Centre where it’s BYOB.
And finally, The Glenfarg Folk Feast takes place 8th – 10th April in stunning Kinross. All info from 01577 830370 or www.glenfargfolkclub.com
