A Winter Union – Christmastide Shows 2019
"Hugely talented...a stunning festive set" - Folking.com
Now in its 5th year A Winter Union is a festive folk band like no other. From five leading lights of the British Roots scene, expect soaring vocals and exquisite musicianship as the band delight with a repertoire of folk songs from across the yuletide traditions. Glorious wassails, fresh arrangements of traditional carols both well-loved and little-known, and original songs heralding the joys of the season.
After a busy year touring albums in their other respective bands, Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage, Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts (BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore & Roberts, Emily Askew Band) and Jade Rhiannon (The Willows) are excited to roll out their stunning festive show. These songs are stirred together with such beautiful 5-part harmonies, accompanied by dobro, fiddle, mandolin, dulcimer, guitars a-plenty and a shruti box thrown in for good measure. A Winter Union are touring throughout December 2019.
