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 with their first, self-titled album.

In 2017, after a 21 year hiatus, Daphne’s Flight re-emerged with their second critically acclaimed studio album Knows Time, Knows Change. Their third studio album, On Arrival, is their most ambitious to date.

Combining 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.

A Mr Kite Benefit.

This event has been rescheduled from 16 May 2020 and 1 May 2021. Customers who booked for the original performance should contact The Met to exchange their tickets to the rescheduled show.
