It might seem unlikely, a group who have sung on both Broadway and at the Albert Hall could be performing in Brigg, but that’s what’s happening

The group in question is The Wilsons, five brothers from the north-east who opened in Sting’s musical, ‘The Last Ship’, on Broadway last summer.

They’re reprising their Broadway success in two special performances with Sting at The Sage in Gateshead at the end of April – but you can see them in Brigg first in March.

The brothers have unique and very powerful voices which have gained them a huge following wherever they go.

Singing either individually or in close harmony, they perform both traditional and more modern material – along with a large helping of humour – making every concert a truly memorable one.

One of the brothers, Chris, has close links with the area, having lived in Winterton for a time some years ago, when he was a popular local singer.

And their support at the concert is also familiar to local audiences.

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Dave Vermond was a great favourite when he sang regularly in the area a few years ago. His witty songs, great voice and brilliant musicianship will perfectly complement The Wilson’s powerful performance.

The concert, promoted by Live Arts in Brigg, is at the Angel on March 7.

Start time is 7.30pm and advance tickets cost £12 from Brigg Tourist Information Centre or call 01652 678771.
