You'll always find something interesting coming up!
Chris While (vocals, guitar, banjo, dulcimer, bodhran, darbuka and percussion) & Julie Matthews (vocals, piano, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki) are breath-taking singers, songwriters, musicians and performers whose energy and commitment to their craft and their audience is boundless. They have been hailed as two of the best and most hard working musicians on the folk roots scene.
Chris and Julie have been nominated ten times in the BBC Radio 2 Folk music awards in the ‘Best Song, Best Duo, Best Live Act’ categories and winning Best Duo in 2009.
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 songs are covered by many revered singers the world over but it is While & Matthews’ musical partnership and obvious joy of performing together that really brings their songs to life. As performers they are unrivaled and their audiences leave their concerts having been through every emotion possible.
Chris and Julie already have ten studio albums together, two live albums and 2 ‘Best Of” compilations. They have also had numerous significant appearances on albums with The Albion Band, St Agnes’ Fountain and Daphne’s Flight.
Amazingly, in their 25th year performing together, this will be Chris & Julie’s first ever public gig as a duo in Suffolk – and it will be happening right here at the Seagull!
