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 London’s Cecil Sharp House and a live session on BBC Radio 3. This year brings the band’s first line-up change with BBC Folk Award nominees Gilmore & Roberts joining members of The Willows and Hannah Sanders.
Put on your glad rags and come and raise your voices with A Winter Union!
