Festive folk supergroup, A Winter Union are spreading Christmas cheer with their seasonal tour which lands at Otley Courthouse on December 22.
Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts (BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore & Roberts, Emily Askew Band) Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage, and Jade Rhiannon (The Willows) present a unique festive show with folk songs from across the Yuletide traditions. You’ll hear glorious wassails and carols of course, but also a smattering of country classics and covers, and brand new original songs hailing the joys of the season.
The songs are stirred together with such beautiful 5-part harmonies that you won’t be able to resist but join your voice with theirs. There’ll be dobro and fiddle, mandolin and dulcimer, guitars a-plenty and a shruti box thrown in for good measure.
A Winter Union are touring throughout December 2017 following the release of their new single The King, available from AWinterUnion.bandcamp.com, with all proceeds going to Missing People (reg. charity 1020419).
