Two stunning voices bound together by family to make one beautiful sound.
Chris and Kellie While (mother and daughter) have been making music together for all of Kellie's life. Ex-Albion Band Chris is best-known for her duo partnership with Julie Matthews and the all-female band Daphne's Flight. She also has 5 solo albums to her name, and has a number of BBC Folk Award nominations.
Blessed with a beautiful voice, daughter Kellie started to sing with Chris at her gigs when she was just thirteen. She, too, was with the Albion Band for a period, before pursuing a career in radio production. She is now head of creative at 7 Digital in London producing the BBC Folk Awards and the Young Folk Awards. She also produces many programs for BBC radio 4, the latest being 'The Instrument Makers series. Her job keeps her away from performing much of the time these days but Kellie still finds some time each summer to play and record with her mum. She is also a much sought-after contributor to other people's projects including albums by artists such as Martin Simpson and Kate Rusby and has had live collaborations with the likes of Eddi Reader, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Fairport Convention and Teddy Thompson.
The obvious joy of watching and hearing these two ladies sing together is an infectious delight.
