A Winter Union
WINTER UNION -
Jade Rhiannon (Vocals, Shruti Box), Katriona
Gilmore (Vocals, Mandolin,
Fiddle), Jamie Roberts (Vocals, Guitar), Hannah Sanders (Vocals, Guitar,
Dulcimer) and Ben Savage (Vocals, Dobro, Guitar).
Five 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 5-piece blast through a
repertoire of brand new, specially written songs, fresh arrangements of
traditional carols both well-loved and little-known, and seasonal classics
from both sides of the Atlantic.
Originally formed in 2015 for a one-off yuletide concert, A Winter Union
returned in 2016 for more shows including Londonís Cecil Sharp House and a
live session on BBC Radio 3. This year brings the bandís first line-up
change with BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore & Roberts joining members of The
Willows and Hannah Sanders.
