The Wilsons, Gary and Gwen Wilson, are a Sandy Cove, Digby Neck based duo. They have played in a variety of venues, over the years, including Bearly’s, in Halifax. Local venues include Lavena’s Catch Cafe, Freeport, Rebekah Hall and Sissiboo Coffee, Bear River, Around the Bend, Meteghan Centre, Breaking Waves Festival and Digby’s Sydney Street Pub.
They play an eclectic mix of music by artists such as Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, to name a few. Playing guitars, accordion as well as stand up bass on some numbers, they offer a unique blend of vocal and instrumental harmony.
“With Gwen’s accordion at the centre and Gary on his guitar, they capture and share the sheer beauty of Cajun music with a hint of Folk and a dusting of Old-Time Country. This husband and wife duo’s simply polished and infectious sound will surely leave you wanting more!”
