Dave Wilson and Willie B: Encounters

Singer and guitarist Dave Wilson and Willie B (nom-de-plume of Brian Wilson) traverse the globe on their EP Encounters, with five Celtic flavoured songs invoking the high seas, longing for their loved ones and hitting the bar to celebrate a successful trip. The highlight is Aboard The Dunbrody, a song that captures the hopes and fears of the Irish immigrants who crossed the ocean in the Nineteenth Century when famine had struck the green isle.

The EP is steeped in traditional folk, a genre where the melody is the main force. Wilson has the powerful yet gentle voice and Willie B lays down a rocking beat (the kind to soothe fidgeting little kids). Encounters is a gem recorded on a shoestring budget. Put them on a stage in a pub and they will be able to shut up a rowdy crowd and bring their to their eyes.
