This accomplished duo that are no strangers to folk club and festival audiences alike here deliver their ninth album in 12 years. This is a perfect showcase for their current material. Dave Wilson’s songs deal with many difficult issues head on, from emigration and homelessness via rocky relationships and first love, to the customary song about his father (every songwriter eventually is driven to write one).
This has never happened before and we're in shock, very nice shock that is.
We were listed in the nominees for Top Duo in the Folking.com 2018 Awards, and came in runners up to the well deserving Kathryn Robert and Sean Lakeman.
Still in shock
We've brought the blog bag to tell those who'd like to find out and to help us remember what our tour with Fairport was like.
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.
