While and Matthews Duo
Chris While and Julie Matthews’ musical partnership began in 1993 when they were key members of the legendary folk super-group The Albion Band. In 1997 they left the band to concentrate on their work as a duo which has seen them tour throughout the world and gain an ever growing devoted fan-base. Their songs have been covered by a range of artists including Mary Black, Barbara Dickson, Christine Collister and Fairport Convention.
Chris While - Vocals, Guitar, Banjo, Dulcimer, Bodhran and Percussion. Chris’s long-time association with legendary folk-rock band Fairport Convention saw her take the place of the late Sandy Denny as the band’s original 1969 line-up and performed the groundbreaking album Liege and Lief at the 2007 Cropredy Festival, an event later broadcast on BBC Radio 2.
Julie Matthews - Vocals, piano, Guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, accordian and ukulele. Described by Folk Roots as awesomely talented Julie is a key songwriter for the Sony Award winning series of Radio Ballads, made for BBC Radio 2 in 2006 and 2012. In early 2010 she joined Rory McLeod, Boo Hewerdine, Jez Lowe and Ruth Notman in the song-writing project "All Along the Wall", celebrating the history of Hadrian’s Wall in music and poetry.
