A prodigiously gifted songwriter with an extraordinarily soulful voice, Winter Mountain has released two critically acclaimed albums and toured the world. His electrifying gifts as a live performer have earned him support slots for Seal, Seth Lakeman, The Feeling, Paolo Nutini, Richard Thompson, Guy Garvey, Sinead O'Conner, The Waterboys and many others.

It’s safe to say it has been a stunning ascent for the Cornwall-born singer-songwriter. Winter Mountain’s (real name Joe Francis) 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, these very qualities inspired folk star Cara Dillon to sign Winter Mountain to her label Charcoal Records. 

He has recorded at Abbey Road, London and Sun Studios, Memphis. He is joined for these Isles of Scilly shows by his band.
