While & Matthews
One of the finest and most loved duos on the British and World folk/roots stages.


With more than 25 years of unrivalled musical partnership and gathering numerous nominations, awards and critical acclaim along the way, much beloved British singer-songwriters Chris While and Julie Matthews recently celebrated a quarter of a century as one of the best loved and most prolific female duos to come out of this country.

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.

it's a real honour just to be an audience member but I've had the added honour of standing on a stage with them playing along in the background, things like that I'll treasure forever, truly gifted human beings"
Richard Hawley

They were soloists alongside Jez Lowe, Bob Fox, John Tams, Barrie Coope and Jim Boyce performing with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra in 'The Ballads of The Great War Live' on Friday Night Is Music Night , BBC Radio 2. presented by Michael Morpurgo.

"Chris While is the best singer in England" Eddi Reader

Froots simply called Julie Matthews 'awesomely talented'.

Chris While (vocals, guitar, banjo, dulcimer, bodhran and percussion) & Julie Matthews (vocals, piano, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki) are stunning singers, songwriters, musicians and performers whose energy and commitment to their craft and their audience is boundless.
They are two of the best and most hard working musicians on the world folk roots scene, both are highly regarded producers and they record everything that they are involved in at their own studio in a small pennine town far from the Londoncentric music industry. They truly are inspirational women.
The undisputed queens of British folk duos continue to come up with the goods,
1st class songs delivered with to die for harmonies, immaculate musicianship & melodies that lodge themselves in your brain The Guardian

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 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 an emotional journey
