Yahoo!!! It’s time for Deep Cove Folk to get going for its 44th season! We’re quite pumped as we plan for another year bringing great acoustic music to the Peninsula.
Our first Club night will be on Friday, September 8 at our favourite church hall, St. John’s United (10990 West Saanich Road). The show will begin at 7:30.
We’re starting off this season with a real bang! Winter Wilson is a duo from the UK who are new to our stage. But they aren’t new to the stage per se, being “one of the hardest working duos on the circuit”. They’ve performed all across the UK and in Germany, Australia, Spain, Canada, Belgium and New Zealand. This is a unique opportunity for us to hear some real journeymen (journeypersons?) from the folk world—a show not to be missed if you enjoy acoustic music that is very well done. And there’ll be lots of fun to be had too.
I guess it’s pretty easy to figure out where the name Winter Wilson came from when you find out that this duo consists of Kip Winter and Dave Wilson. Together they have honed their stage craft over years of touring and bring “a sense of intimacy to every venue, blending superb, often hard-hitting original songs, stunning harmonies and musicianship with sometimes hilarious humour and tales of life on the road.” Kip (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) ”simply has a voice to die for”, while Dave (vocals, guitar and banjo) is recognized as being among the top tier of British songwriters. His songs have been sung in folk clubs all across the UK and beyond.
And for those of you who enjoy hearing the human voice done up right, here’s what a British folk reviewer had to say: “In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly.” High praise, indeed.
So, mark Friday, September 8, 7:30 on your calendar and plan to join us for a real bang-up evening to start to Deep Cove Folk’s 2023-2024 season—we look forward to seeing you.
And just in case it slipped by without your noticing, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SHOW WILL BE STARTING AT 7:30 (not 8:00 as in the past).
