Winter Wilson's current tour showcases their latest album "Ashes and Dust", the follow up to "Cutting Free" which made the UK Daily Telegraph's ten recommended folk albums for Summer 2014.
Kip Winter & Dave Wilson 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 song writers, 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.

"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)
"Dave Wilson is now recognised as being in the premier league of UK songwriters and Kip Winter simply has a voice to die for and both are extremely proficient musicians." - John Roffey
Best wishes for your concerts for the rest of this year. I hope you come back to Australia some time soon.
We had a great time and hope to be back.
Much love to you all (especially Donald)
Kip & Dave
