Singer/songwriter Joe Francis is Winter Mountain.
Hailing from the wild and beautiful northern shores of Cornwall, Winter Mountain is an extraordinary talent. His soulful voice, beautiful melodies, energy and charisma are reminiscent of a time before digital recording, when the emphasis fell on the importance of the performance and the essence of the song.
A skilled multi-instrumentalist Winter Mountain was first brought to the attention of the greater public gallery when Cara Dillon signed him to her label after watching a performance in Donegal.
Since then Winter Mountain has released two successful albums and toured with Seth Lakeman, Seal, Guy Garvey of Elbow, Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Rosanne Cash, The Feeling, Ben Ottewell of Gomez and many more. Recent times have seen him featured in Total Guitar magazine and perform live sessions for BBC Radio 2.
Winter Mountain is returning to The Slaughtered Lamb / The Castle with his band following an extraordinary live performance in November last year.
