While & Matthews (Music)
October 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm
One of the finest and most loved duos on the British and World folkroots stages comes to Banbury this October!
With more than 25 years of unrivaled musical partnership and gathering numerous nominations, awards and critical acclaim along the way, much beloved British singer-songwriters Chris While and Julie Matthews celebrated a quarter of a century last year as one of the best loved and most prolific female duos to come out of this country. They should have been touring in May 2020 with the fantastic Daphne’s Flight and as the duo in October 2020.
They have played more than 2,600 gigs, appeared on over 100 albums, written hundreds of original songs and reached millions of people around the world. Now, 27 years after their debut, they sound as fresh and vital as ever on their most recent and 11th studio album, Revolution Calls.
Shrewsbury Folk Festival commissioned a celebratory ‘While & Matthews’ takeover in August 2019 for which the duo curated the Sunday on the Stage 2, featuring friends and collaborators such as Eddi Reader, Blair Dunlop and Charlie Dore, IOTA, and Burden Of Paradise with lead singer Helen Watson, their Daphne’s Flight sisters.
