A Winter Union

Date:Wed 13 Dec
Time:8pm
Venue:Emmanuel United Reformed Church
Price:£19 adv

Six leading lights of the British roots scene join forces to create a festive folk band like no other.

Expect soaring harmonies and exquisite musicianship as the 6-piece blast through a repertoire of brand new, specially written songs, fresh arrangements of traditional carols both wellloved and little-known, and Christmas classics from both sides of the Atlantic.

Originally formed in 2015 for a one-off yuletide concert by members of The Willows, Hannah Sanders and Megson, A Winter Union returned in 2016 for more shows including London’s Cecil Sharp House and a live session on BBC Radio 3. This year brings the band’s first line-up change with BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore & Roberts joining in place of Megson.

This year the new line-up will be releasing a single and EP to accompany the tour; the title of which is currently a closely guarded secret…

  • Katriona Gilmore – Vocals, Mandolin, Fiddle
  • Jamie Roberts – Vocals, Guitar
