The Wilson Family

The Wilson Family are from Billingham on Teesside in North East England. They have been singing and performing a cappella folk songs since 1974. Over those decades the group members have consisted of sister Pat and five brothers: Tom, Chris, Steve, Ken and Mike. It’s no exaggeration to say that they are the accepted benchmark for powerhouse unaccompanied singing. They were awarded the Gold Badge of the English Folk Dance & Song Society (EFDSS) in 2017, the highest honour the society can bestow.

The core members of the present day group are Tom, Chris and Steve and youngest brother Mike.

Last year, they released Sibling Revivalry, with 14 songs never previously recorded by The Wilson Family. They were very pleased with the outcome and hope that everyone who buys it will be too!

They have toured with Sting, and this is what he has to say about them, “They have a family sound and a natural, bone-deep understanding of music and harmony. And it's quite something.”
