Respected folk duo Chris While and Julie Matthews are appearing for a Wortley Folk Club concert at St Ann’s Church Hall, Deepcar, on Saturday, July 16 at 8.15pm,

Chris and Julie are, individually, award-winning songwriters, singers and musicians, known for their exceptionally powerful and moving vocals and for the quality of their live performances.

As a duo their musical partnership has flourished with tours each year throughout the UK, Europe, Canada and Australia. Although internationally acclaimed, with their songs being covered by well known singers the world over, they continue to be a leading force in the UK’s folk music circuit.

Julie was born in Sheffield, the daughter of a steelworker. She began playing guitar at the age of nine before teaching herself piano. While still at school she began song writing and recording, Julie Matthews is a dynamic performer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist (piano, guitar, bazouki, mandolin, piano accordion and harmonica).
