Daphne's Flight


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 they released their new album on the Fledgling Label on CD and Vinyl 'Knows Time, Knows Change'; 2018 brought a sensational new live album  available now.

Daphne's Flight will be touring the UK throughout in May 2020 with a stunning brand new album and will be appearing at summer festivals this year.


Now two decades after their impressive and much loved debut album, the remarkable ensemble: Christine Collister, Melanie Harrold, Julie Matthews, Helen Watson, and Chris While are on the move again – older, wiser and twice as powerful.
