Places £35 (2 under-25-year-olds £17)
Elephant & Castle White Hill Lewes BN7 2DJ
The glorious, powerful vocal harmony of The Wilsons of Teesside has rung out in folk clubs & festivals for over 40 years. In 2011 they performed at the Royal Albert Hall & in 2013 accompanied Sting in 20 shows at The Public Theatre, New York. Tom, Chris, Steve, Ken & Mike sing traditionally-oriented songs with deep understanding, joy & good humour. They shared a close friendship with Peter Bellamy & cite him as a major influence, along with The Copper Family, The Young Tradition, The Watersons, Johnny Collins, Jim Mageean & Fred Jordan amongst many others. They were awarded the EFDSS Gold Badge in 2018.
In the workshop The Wilsons will explore their singing history & how the group evolved. Music reading is not needed. There will be plenty of chance to sing, try out some harmonies, & discuss the songs in the final ‘Big Sing.’
IN THE EVENING THE WILSON FAMILY perform at the ELEPHANT & CASTLE
