Winter Wilson + Hannah Sanders

At: Haslemere Museum, High Street,

HASLEMERE, Surrey GU27 2LA

Kip Winter & Dave Wilson hail from Lincolnshire and together have been making sweet music for many years. They have put in the miles, touring the whole of the UK and now their patient groundwork is beginning to have its effect and they are at last reaping the rewards and recognition they fully deserve. Their last (and sixth album to date), is called "Cutting Free" and it marks the point at which Kip & Dave decided to throw caution to the wind and become fully committed professional musicians. It seems the risk was worth taking as no less than Martin Chilton (The Daily Telegraph Culture Editor), selected it as one of the best Folk albums of 2014. He stated:

"Kip Winter and Dave Wilson have a lively chemistry and it's easy to see why they are a popular pair on the Folk circuit. Wilson sings strongly and plays guitar and banjo well, while Winter has a good voice and also plays accordion with finesse. They show off their skills to fine effect on their new album "Cutting Free", which has one song based on a Rudyard Kipling poem. Wilson is an imaginative songwriter and the highlight is the wistful "I'm Cutting Free". But there is humour too, especially in the acerbic and witty "I've Got The Consultation Bullshi*t Blues".

 

The Lecture Room at Haslemere Museum is the perfect setting to get up close and personal with our visiting Lincolnshire Yellowbellies. 

 

Support: Hannah Sanders

Hannah visited us back in November 2014 with her American musical partner Liz Simmons. She has a warm and charming personality, a beautiful voice and she is an accomplished guitar and bass dulcimer player. As well as performing some cracking songs, from her brand new debut solo album "Charms Against Sorrow" , Hannah has promised to do a couple of Joni Mitchell covers as a special birthday treat for me. Don't miss her; she's starting to attract a lot of attention with her wondeful music making and it was great to hear a track from Hannah's album on a recent BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.
