Folkworks: The Wilson Family: 40 Years of a Unique Singing Family Tradition

Sage Two

A Folkworks concert by brothers, Tom, Chris, Steve, Ken & Mike Wilson.

The evening will span the group’s extensive traditional & contemporary folk song repertoire of the past forty years:
These five siblings have been singing together for almost 40 years and, in so doing, have created their own family tradition. They are now widely considered to be the benchmark for exuberant, acapella harmony singing.

They have performed throughout the UK and Europe, their musical journey including performances at many of the UK’s premier Folk Festivals, an evening at The BBC Proms, with Kathryn Tickell, a series of sell-out shows in New York performing with Sting, promoting his new musical project: The Last Ship; and of course two memorable sell-out shows at Sage Gateshead!

During this concert of their best loved songs, which will represent the full span of their 40 year repertoire, right up to the present day, they will include an audio visual song cycleto celebrate the works of acclaimed songwriter, and fellow Teessider, Graeme Miles.
