Showcasing their latest album Far Off on the Horizon, follow up to the critically acclaimed Ashes & Dust, Winter Wilson come to HEART off the back of a triumphant UK tour with the legendary Fairport Convention.
Now in their 6th year as full-time musicians, Kip Winter and Dave Wilson bring a sense of intimacy to every venue, blending superb, often hard-hitting original songs, stunning harmonies and musicianship with sometimes hilarious tales of life on the road. “This isn’t an act; it’s a domestic.”
You will laugh; you may cry. You will certainly want to see them again!
Kip (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) “simply has a voice to die for” – (John Roffey, Maverick Magazine), whilst Dave (vocals, guitar and banjo) is now rightly recognized as being amongst the top tier of British songwriters, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats”
With a sound rooted in the haze of the English folk revival, Henry Parker takes up a style crafted by players such as Bert Jansch and Nick Drake in the 1960’s and early 70’s. His open tuned acoustic creates a sound that would fit the ‘Folk-Baroque’ label, a term used to describe those musicians who followed the path laid down by the great originator Davy Graham. His songs and tunes arrive either worked from his own hand, or are borrowed and developed from the traditional British folk cannon. Those that have seen him perform on a hollow-body electric guitar, understand the influence and impression that modern jazz has made on his music.
“Henry Parker has a beautifully clear and precise finger picking acoustic guitar style…this isn’t background folk club music, or filler, it’s quite simply gorgeous.” – FATEA
“A gifted young guitar player who has been impressing local audiences with his dexterity and choice of material” – Tykes News
“Bloody excellent” – Wizz Jones
