Five of the finest singer-songwriters of their generation, Daphne’s Flight is a unique and magical blend of individual styles that captivate audiences with complex harmony arrangements, unbridled energy and the infectious joy of performing together.

In 2017, after a 21 year hiatus, Daphne’s Flight re-emerged with their second critically acclaimed studio album “Knows Time, Knows Change”.

With several more successful tours of the UK and the release of a Live Album in 2018, their Festival performances are among the highlights of every festival they’ve played.

2020 sees the release of their third and most ambitious studio album to date. There’s no holding back now!

In 1995, Christine Collister, Melanie Harrold, Julie Matthews, Helen Watson and Chris While, acclaimed and appreciated for their individual talents as folk, blues, rock and soul singers, found themselves at the Cambridge Festival. They decided to sing some songs together ... magic happened and Daphne's Flight took off. A widely acclaimed eponymous studio album and UK tour followed with a prestigious date at London’s Union Chapel, all of which marked a turning point in the role of women within the English folk movement.
