Folk Bands and Artists
Chris Green & Sophie Matthews
Formerly known as Blast from the Past, Chris Green and Sophie Matthews play English traditional songs and tunes in a thoroughly 21st-century kick-ass style. Using a beguiling blend of ancient instruments such as cittern, English border bagpipes and shawm as well as modern folk instruments such as guitar, flute and piano accordion, Chris and Sophie breathe new life into material from hundreds of years ago, making it fresh, relevant and accessible for a modern audience.
“Sophie and Chris have a gift for choosing great tunes and songs from our rich and complex English folk tradition and performing them with skill and imagination” - Paul James, Blowzabella
