Two generations of great singers come together.

A mother and daughter relationship is rarely ever like this.

The world class vocals of internationally lauded Chris While and the uncannily similar quality of daughter, Kellie, combine for an evening of unforgettable live music. Their pleasure in singing together is obvious and when they duet, it's easy to lose sight of who is who even though separately they have their own distinctive sound and style.

As Kellie says ‘….for us, singing together comes almost as naturally as breathing - it feels right and I suppose that's partly due to our special bond and to the physical aspect of being related and partly because it’s something we have done ever since I was small. There's no ego, no competition - just two women who love to sing together for the pure joy of it - we just happen to be mother and daughter…’

Chris While:
People will try to compare Chris While's voice to others but as fROOTS Magazine wrote of her, "She learns from many, takes from few and comes away her own woman". Recognised as one of the finest singers on the acoustic circuit both in the UK and around the world her reputation as a performer and writer has been consolidated during the time she’s spent touring, writing, recording and performing both as a soloist and with singer-songwriter Julie Matthews.

Kellie While:
Kellie is an accomplished singer and guitarist having fronted the Albion Band and provided guest vocals for some of the biggest names in folk including Eddi Reader, Fairport Convention, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Martin Simpson.

Chris and Kellie While, the duo, is unmissable!
