Chris While and Julie Matthews

Supported by Shaun Hutch

A long overdue return visit from this brilliant and ever-popular pairing who are celebrating 25 years on the world's stages!

Regarded by many as two of the best songwriters around, their 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.

Both multi-instrumentalists, Julie plays guitar, piano, ukulele, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica and accordion while Chris plays guitar, bodhran, banjo, dulcimer and percussion. Their musical careers have produced successful solo albums and a variety of projects away from the duo including the Christmas band ‘St Agnes Fountain’ with David Hughes and Fairport Convention’s Chris Leslie.

Shaun Hutch is a singer/guitarist/songwriter from Sheffield who plays a broad range of material from traditional to contemporary folk songs, his own material, (which often speak of his love of the moors, mountains and all things in nature) guitar instrumentals and even the occasional Roy Orbison song! Shaun has been playing around the local folk scene for around 10 years and is involved in running the 'Cross Folk Club' as well as a number of sessions. His influences range from Martin Simpson, Steve Tilston, Chris Wood to Julian Bream, the Beatles and of course Roy Orbison.  

On-line tickets are available for this event.
