Chris While & Julie Matthews

Julie plays guitar, piano, bouzouki, mandolin & harmonica. Chris plays guitar, bodhran, banjo, dulcimer & percussion. Breathtaking singers, songwriters, musicians and performers whose dedication to their craft and audience holds no bounds. Though internationally acclaimed, they continue to be a leading force on the UK's acoustic/roots arts circuit. Their songs cover life as they see it, from the industrial waste lands of the north, to injustice and freedom, matters of the heart and everything in between. Their musical partnership and obvious joy of performing together really brings their songs to life. As performers they are unrivalled and their audiences leave their concerts having been through every emotion possible.

They're simply World Class, it just doesn't come any better than that - CHRIS LESLIE OF FAIRPORT CONVENTION

I have become one of their biggest fans as a result of listening to their superb output. They are what I most admire, intelligent and musical with attitude - BARBARA DICKSON
