Daphne’s Flight are Christine Collister, Chris While, Julie Matthews, Helen Watson and Melanie Harrold
Back with a new live album, this is the last chance to see them live until 2020.
Back in 1995, five of the finest folk, blues and soul singers of their generation found themselves at the Cambridge Festival. They decided to sing some songs together ... magic happened and Daphne's Flight took off.
A widely acclaimed UK tour and a prestigious date at London’s Union Chapel soon followed. The project has been seen as marking a turning point in the role of women within the English folk movement.
In 2017 these five remarkable musicians decided to sing together once more, with a brand new album and sell out tour, it was such a hit they’ve decided to do it again.
Daphne’s Flight are all contemporary songwriters who cross a huge range of topics and genres, blending folk, blues, jazz and pop whilst also dipping into new and vibrant arrangements of classic covers such as the Beach Boy’s God Only Knows and Elvis Costello’s Ship Building. All are woven together with striking harmonies and supported by a range of instrumentation and percussion. An evening with Daphne’s Flight will be filled with energy, humour, passion and a power house of vocals.
