Oooooh! We've been trying to get this gig in the diary for YONKS because these three are just the most sublime and powerful singers of beautiful songs, both original compositions and great covers and they are right up there at the top of favourites list.
Chris While & Julie Matthews are one of the best loved duos on the folk and acoustic music scene, winning Best Duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and going from strength to strength every year. Song writers and singers extraordinnaire, they have been involved in various collaborations with the likes of Eddi Reader, Barbara Dickson, Martin Simpson, Fairport Convention, Richard Thompson and many, many more. They are internationally loved, tour Australia regularly as well as touring in the UK and have one of the most loyal followings in the business. A Chris and Julie gig moves, delights and excites you!
And tonight in a very rare appearance with the other two, is the wonderful Kellie While to make it even more special! Kellie tours regularly with her mum, Chris, as well as with The Albion Band's Christmas Show and has worked with Martin Simpson, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Richard Thompson and Teddy Thompson and was an integral part of E2K in the early noughties. She sings for the pure love of it - as do Chris & Julie - and this comes across every time.
Together this is an incredible trio of fantastic, powerful and beautiful voices, ready wit & repartee and great songs. What on earth is not to like?
Please come along and enjoy this with us and chase away those February blues :)
Doors at 7pm, concert starts at 7.30pm.
MC'd by the fabulous, Martin Simpson.
