Chris While & Julie Matthews

Chris While & Julie Matthews


Chris While and Julie Matthews’ musical partnership began in the mid 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, Kathy Chiavola, Mary Duff and Fairport Convention.

Both multi-instrumentalists Julie sings, writes, plays guitar, piano, ukulele, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica and accordion while Chris sings, writes, 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.
