Feeling a bit camera shy


Hughes & Wilson is the continuation of a partnership that has spanned 16 years and 8 full-length albums. 2005 saw them not only tour Ontario's Legions, promoting their newest album and video "Thank God for Poppies", they performed at Canada's Wonderland, Roy Thomson Hall and Exhibition Place in Toronto. Rick's songwriting has been compared to Gordon Lightfoot and John Prine - not because of the sound, but because of the feelings that his songs evoke. Belinda's songwriting tends toward a light country style. On stage, Hughes & Wilson combine their instrumental talent and superb vocal abilities with humour and good-natured sparring that involves and delights the audiences. What sets them apart from other bands is a unique combination of lack of pretense and audacity. The first shows itself in the humility of the players - they never 'blow their own horn' - they don't have to, because once they start to play, the magic is evident. The audacity allows them to play any night (Legions, bars, private parties) with at least 50% original, often unreleased material in a 4-hour gig, and have the audience eating it up!
