About

Described by Bright Young Folk as "experienced storytellers" who bring "timeless quality" to their music, award-winning duo Chris Elliott and Caitlin Jones have been playing music together since they met in 2014. Previously performing alongside Bella Gaffney (Magpies) and Heather Sirrel (Pilgrim's Way) in the four-piece 'Bric-a-Brac,' Chris and Caitlin formed as a duo in 2017.

In 2019, they released their debut album "Carry Me Home," which takes listeners to "an area of diverse landscapes, history and traditions, a patchwork of Staffordshire and beyond." Since then, they have become well-known faces on the folk circuit, and have won several accolades, including the Shrewsbury Folk Festival open mic competition in 2018, and the 2022 Downend Folk & Roots Cliff Woolley Award. They were a featured artist at the 2021 Folk Expo in Manchester, and are currently working on their second album 'Game of Halves,' which will be released in Spring 2023.

Both proudly from Staffordshire, Chris and Caitlin bring a mix of traditional and self-penned ballads about place, identity, old and new. Driving guitar and bouzouki accompany haunting whistles and harmonium along with intricate and warm vocal harmonies. Expect to hear songs written for and collected from all around the Midlands and beyond, accompanied by the heartfelt human stories that inspired them, their charming storytelling and warm Midlands humour.

Chris and Caitlin are also currently on tour as part of the band 'A Different Thread' and feature on their latest album 'The Call of the Road.'
