While and Matthews

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners,  Chris While and Julie Matthewswon the award for best duo in 2009 having been nominees many times, including this year.

Regarded by many as two of the best songwriters around, their musical partnership began in 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 and Fairport Convention.

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