with Peter as the 3rd harmony vocal.In September 2013 they are coming together again, this time to tour as a trio, where the stunning voices of Christine and Dave will be beautifully supported by Peter’s harmonies and piano. They will perform a host of their favourite songs - crossing every music genre; soul, blues, country and maybe a little folkabilly too. An evening packed with musicality, talent, emotion. … and surely a little humour too. Colouring the narrative is an eclectic collection of timeless songs evoking the hopes, dreams and disappointments that we all have shared. A unique collage of naturally presented emotions and hard won experiences laid bare in an unmissable evening of harmonious reflection

Christine Collisteris a Manx folk, blues and jazz singer-songwriter. She was born and grew up on the Isle of Man and first came to public attention in 1986 as the singer of the theme song for the BBC‘s television adaptation of Fay Weldon‘s book The Life and Loves of a She-Devil. Prior to this, in 1985 she became a permanent member of the Richard Thompson Band, and, over a period of four years, took in several world tours with Thompson, after which came seven years working with singer, songwriter and guitar player, Clive Gregson. During this period, the couple released five albums. “Christine Collister can sing the birds down off the trees and send them back with a tiny flick of her vocal chords.” Mojo
Today, after 21 years ‘treading the boards’ with the band, with his solo albums, duo tours with Paul Jones, and soundtrack work (for commercials and such projects as BBC TV’s ‘King of the Ghetto’ and the Comic Strip’s ‘Strike!’) Dave Kelly is firmly estabished as Europe’s premier blues performer. The Blues Band’s Dave Kelly – his guitar and voice – great talent, great depth and a real sense of his roots. “Time Out” Peter Filleul – the melodic backbone of the Climax Blues Band, later becoming a session musician recording with numerous artists including, Loudon Wainwright III, The Blues Band and Richard Thompson, adding composing, mixing and production work to his keyboard playing.
