We're over halfway through the tour with Fairport and it's chugging along nicely. As Chris Leslie's song says “Our Bus Rolls On”.
What a smashing bunch of chaps they are! We've been made very welcome by the band and the crew and soon settled into the Fairport family.
We are over the moon with the reaction to Far Off on the Horizon. Please click on the links below to see what folks have been saying.
"Another fine album of original songs...Ghost...should be heard in every folk club in the country." **** (4 stars) Dai Jeffries, R&R Magazine.
Far off on the Horizon is now on general release and we're on the road with the mighty Fairport Convention.
We are delighted with the reviews of the album, let's hope the concert reviews are as good.
"Wilson's songs pull no punches when relating to the sights and sounds of everyday local life, and are complimented by Kip's powerful and emotional voice."
We are over the moon to be going on tour with the legendary Fairport Convention. We've been invited along as their special guests to play twenty eight shows across England between January 25th and February 25th 2018.
The tour will coincide with the release of our new album Far Off On The Horizon.
Please come along and support us; we'd love to see you. Details of the tour can be found on the Dates page.
So Cambridge is over for another year. It was wet (very wet!), but it was great fun. Thanks to everybody who came to see us play - the reaction was wonderful, and we hope to see some of you again soon.
So it's back to the new album, and then Nottingham Riverside Festival next weekend, before we head North, first to Staveley in Cumbria and then Scotland.
Recording continues, along with photography and design work, for the new album.
In the meantime, our next gig will be on Saturday 29th July at 2:05pm, when we have a showcase slot in the Club Tent at Cambridge Festival, as guests of Cambridge Acoustic Routes.
We were surprised when a friend messaged us the link to this article in Lincolnshire Life Magazine, it came out of the blue, but not unwelcome
We recently had the good fortune to be invited into the BBC Radio Lincolnshire studios, to play a couple of songs live and to have a chat about our tour down under. We took the opportunity to give a new song, "Far off on the Horizon" its first airing.
You can here the songs and the chat via the listen again link below.
Winter Wilson in WA
By Al R
Just what is a muse and how do you get one? It seems everyone else but me knows. But the one thing I think I do know is how to tell when somebody has one. Passion and an unrelenting itch to create seem to give it away. I reckon Winter Wilson must have several muses on a continuing consulting basis.
