Chris While and Julie Matthews
Saturday October 19 @ 8:00 pm£16
With 25 years of unrivalled musical partnership and gathering nominations, awards and critical acclaim along the way, British artists and singer-songwriters Chris While and Julie Matthews are celebrating this year with a brand new album ‘Revolution Calls’ and an extensive Autumn tour of the UK as well as numerous summer festivals. Chris and Julie will be curating the Pengwern stage at Shrewsbury Festival this year and will be performing with their band.
In 2017 they performed music from ‘The Ballads Of Child Migration’ at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards alongside Boo Hewerdine, John McCusker, Kris Drever, Barbara Dickson and many
more and consequently toured the project in 2018.
May 2017 saw Chris and Julie touring the UK with all-female super group Daphne’s Flight again, (Christine Collister, Helen Watson and Malanie Harrold) after a 21 year gap bringing audiences across the country not only to their feet, but also to tears. They completed a second tour in September 2018 and their story continues.
Chris and Julie are more sought after and more creative than ever and are at the very top of their field.
In the spring of 2018 they returned to Australia on their 12th biennial tour. They were named ‘Artists of the Year’ at the prestigious Port Fairy Music Festival, one of the biggest events of its kind in Australasia.
This duo have been nominated ten times in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the ‘Best Song, Best Duo and Best Live Act’ categories, winning Best Duo in 2009.
Chris and Julie are regulars with us each Christmas as part of St. Agnes Fountain. Without doubt two of the most talented musicians on the circuit, who always show their true love of performing so that audiences are guaranteed to leave having enjoyed superb material and great musicianship.
