Wilson began his musical career at the age of 10 when his father bought him his first accordion. After a few lessons from a local teacher he joined the family band playing local venues and further afield. One night he was asked to sing a song and everyone remarked what a great voice this young man had.
After a few years Wilson was signed up by the London-based Prism label and this was to launch him on the global market. Since then his life has been busy playing gigs all across the UK including a few trips to the USA and Australia.
Having recorded 26 albums and 10 videos he recently signed a deal with a new London-based record company. His current catalogue consists of a wide array of tunes on CD and DVD format. He is very busy all year round playing concerts and dances.
Wilson has visited Shetland on many occasions and the club is delighted to welcome him back for another tour. He will be appearing at the Garrison Theatre in Lerwick on Thursday 17th May at 7.30pm, the Brae Public Hall on Friday 18th May at 8pm and Quarff Public Hall on Saturday 19th May at 7.30pm.
