Friday Aug 27 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
A prodigiously gifted Folk/Americana songwriter with a soulful voice, who’s played support slots for pop icon Seal, Richard Thompson, Seth Lakeman, Paulo Nutini, Ben Howard and many others, it’s safe to say it has been an extraordinary ascent for Winter Mountain.
Winter Mountain is the stage name of Cornwall-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Joe Francis. His sound is reminiscent of a time before digital recording when the emphasis fell on the importance of live performance and the essence of the songs. Indeed, it was these very qualities inspired folk star Cara Dillon and her husband/producer Sam Lakeman to sign Winter Mountain to their label Charcoal Records.
Winter Mountain has recorded two critically acclaimed albums at Abbey Road, London and Sun Studios, Memphis. New music is set for release in 2020.
Joe is joined on this evening by extraordinarily versatile and gifted guitar player Sam Foster.
