Expect to hear harps, banjos, glockenspiels, melodicas, electro beats and classic songsmithery colliding in a unique mash-up that is both deeply traditional and yet modern. Formed in 2008, the band have built up a strong following around northern England via relentless gigging - there is nowhere they've played where they haven't been invited back.

Winter Wilson


Winter Wilson at The Globe Glossop

Thursday 11th June 2015 8pm

Winter, Wilson

Support: Paul McGladerry and Gaynor Wilson

Tickets £6 available from The Globe or wegottickets.com

During 17 years of part-time touring, Kip Winter (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) and Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar, banjo) built a reputation for fine songs, stunning harmonies and spontaneous, (occasionally outrageous!) off-the-wall humour.

Dave Wilson is now recognised as one of the UK’s best contemporary, acoustic songwriters. A great wordsmith, his songs are sometimes challenging, often lyrical, but always poetic and have been widely covered, including “Storm Around Tumbledown” recorded by Vin Garbutt, amongst many others.

Kip Winter has simply one of the best voices in the business, delivering power and emotion in equal measure. In the past she has sung everything from opera to soul and jazz, but is at her best (and happiest) singing folk and blues.

After becoming full-time professional musicians in 2012, Winter Wilson have gone on to be one of the hardest-working duos on the UK acoustic music scene. Their sixth album “Cutting Free” was selected as one of the Daily Telegraph’s top 10 Folk albums for summer 2014, but it is above all their live performances which have continued to delight audiences across the UK.

With a full touring schedule for 2015 and an ever-increasing fan base, Winter Wilson’s reputation can only continue to grow.

Merry Hell

Support: Paul Higham

Tickets £9 SOLD OUT

Festival favourites Merry Hell are a joyous folk-rock explosion of melody, commitment, energy and above all, songs that will stay with you long after listening. Founded in their native North West of England, Merry Hell is an eight-piece folk-rock band. The band was forged in the smouldering embers of 90's Folk/punk band, The Tansads. While Merry Hell retains a nucleus of five former Tansads members, brothers John, Bob and Andrew Kettle (guitar, mandolin and vocals respectively), along with keyboard player, Lee Goulding and drummer Andy Jones, the addition of vocalist, Virginia Kettle (wife of John), has helped create a new identity, purpose and spirit, in their music. Her prolific, ingenious and insightful song writing is one of the focal points of Merry Hell's recordings and live performances – her presence has perfectly complemented a group which has taken particular pride in penning original material. 2015 sees the release of their third album, The Ghost In Our House and other stories..., with national tours lined up for Spring and Autumn, the return of Merry Hell Acoustic and a summer filled with festivals.
