Take a watch of the video, below…

Winter Wilson recently hit the road with the legendary Fairport Convention – but they could very easily be on the dole. This is the story of a couple who turned the nightmare of redundancy into a dream of playing music for a living…

“We gave ourselves a year to see how things would turn out,” says singer Kip Winter. “Five years later we are still getting away with it! It’s not easy, but playing music professionally beats working for a living”

Kip and partner Dave Wilson were popular part timers on the folk scene and released Winter Wilson albums at their own leisure. But, following the banking crash and global crisis of 2012, things changed for the couple and music became the priority. Since then, critical acclaim has followed their every move,  having made one of the Daily Telegraph’s ‘Top Ten Folk Albums’ of 2014 in the redundancy-inspired and intrepid Cutting Free

The music they make is as sharp in sound as it is observational in message and is delivered with a keen ear for melody and instinctive harmonies. Dave Wilson’s songs pull no punches and are as comfortable in a contemporary box, as they are at home on the floor of a folk club. Indeed, his songs have found their way into the repertoire of many a seasoned floor singer, as well as several other recording artists

The duo were recently hand-picked to support musical legends Fairport Convention and are currently on the road with them, delighting audiences around the country. To coincide with this, they released their brand-new album Far Off On The Horizon on January 25th – a collection of original songs on subjects as diverse as migration, old age, young love and Australian weather! This latest collection of songs fits very well with the emotional geography of the roads they’re now travelling

“We never did the gap year thing as students, and we knew we had enough money from my redundancy to buy a van and get by for a little while, so I’m glad we said: ‘sod the daily grind’ and got out there,” says Dave
