“It’s an early Christmas treat and a perfect seasonal music present!” – Laurel Canyon
Now in its 7th 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.
Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage, Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts (3 times BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore & Roberts) 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.
