Winter Wilson and Alistair Russell at Whitby Rifle Club

The Rifle Club, Yorks, YO21 3EW.
Fri 8th November 2019 7:30PM
A welcome return to Whitby for Winter Wilson who opened up for both Fairport Convention and Lindisfarne at the Pavilion last year.
Twice nominated in the best duo category in the awards Winter Wilson hit 2018 at full speed with the stunning new album “Far Off on the Horizon”, and a tour with folk rock legends Fairport Convention. Their 2019 schedule maintains the momentum, including tours of Australia, Canada and Europe, plus the release of “Live & Unconventional”, an album recorded live on the tour and featuring Fairport.
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 hilarious tales of life on the road. Kip (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) "simply has a voice to die for” (John Roffey, Maverick Magazine),whilst Dave (vocals, guitar and banjo) is rightly recognized as being amongst the top tier of British songwriters, with his songs covered by some of folk's "greats". Together, their voices are sublime.
“In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly” (David Aird, Chairman, Glenfarg Folk Club)
But it’s in live performance where these two really excel. Every show is different, but entertainment is key. That’s why so many clubs and festivals book them time and again. Singing out for the underdog in glorious harmony and a hatful of laughs for good measure.

Providing local interest will be singer/guitarist Alistair Russell. With Scottish background and a Tyneside/Teesside upbringing, Alistair lives now more or less permanently in Whitby, when he is not on tour performing solo or with fellow Whitby-ite Chris Parkinson, or manning the sound desk at many festivals throughout the country. He is proud to have had a hand in the mixing and mastering of two recent Winter Wilson albums. He sings traditional songs from all over the British Isles, some of his own compositions and any other song that takes his fancy. His long years in Scotland’s Battlefield Band took him round the world many times and honed his relaxed stage presence.
