The Wilsons at the Bothy

The Wilsons are a vocal harmony group consisting of five brothers and a sister from Teesside.  Here are some comments about them:

"There's a musical honesty about them that links past and present together. They are among the people who go about singing traditional songs that move me - which I really love, because that's what I try to do. But what appeals to me about them, apart from their musical skill, is their honesty. They are what they are and do what they do and say what they say and it's very direct and I love that. They're not pretenders." - Dick Gaughan

"The Northern Wilsonia - a vocal orchestra..." - Peter Bellamy

"They have synthesised the qualities of all their major influences, which sets them apart as one of the foremost harmony groups entertaining folk audiences today" - Roy Harris

"Singing with the Wilson Family makes life a whole lot easier" - Louis Killen

They're appearing at the Bothy tomorrow night at 8.00pm. It's likely to be busy, so get there early.  The Bothy meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS.  The real ale will be Thwaites Wainwright.
