Christine is an accomplished singer with a distinctive voice and is also a fine song writer. She's been a regular folk club attendee and sing-a-round singer since her teens with a wide repertoire of songs from across the folk spectrum. But only in the last few years, encouraged by her friends, and when finally at a workshop with Dave Webber and Ani Fentiman she found her "second" voice, has she emerged as a performer of real talent and presence. Over a similar period of time Christine has also developed as a songwriter of exceptional ability. Her songs display a maturity which belies her relative inexperience at the art, with memorable melodies and beautifuly crafted lyrics. Having had 'January Morning' commended at the biennial Maidenhead Folk Song Competition in 2005 it has been recorded by Anthony John Clarke, and in 2007 'The Coffee Song' won! Both these songs feature on our first album.|
Christine has two daughters and a grandson, and until recently worked full time as a finance officer in a local secondary school.
