Making Waves, the Chittlehampton Community Choir, was formed in late 2013 as a village project to encourage community singing for the residents of Chittlehampton and surrounding areas. From an initial attendance of about a dozen the choir has grown to membership of almost forty.
The current musical director – Kate Stevens – took over the choir last summer and with a repertoire of gospel, traditional, musical theatre and film songs, the choir has performed at venues large and small all around Chittlehampton and South Molton. They practice every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm at The Bell in Chittlehampton. New members are always welcome and no experience of singing or music is required – just a positive attitude and sense of humour.
Making Waves first appeared at the North Devon Show in 2014 and we are very pleased to welcome them back this year on to our Stage on Wednesday 7th August.

We look forward to welcoming Chris on Wednesday 7th August at the North Devon Show.
CHRIS DRIVER is a singer-songwriter known for his blend of Folk-Country-Pop, heartfelt lyrics and emotive and captivating vocals.
His debut single 'Lightning' was featured as BBC Introducing South track of the day in January this year, and 'Fate' is his much anticipated second single. Accompanied by the delicate simplicity of mesmerizing acoustic guitar lines, Chris's lyrics and vocals are the focal point of this incredibly raw and sincere performance.
About the song, Chris said, 'Fate is a four-minute autobiographical piece, a timely reminder that some of life's decisions are out of our control. Like a conversation, I wanted the song to connect with the listener and convey that emotion of the journey through life, loss, and the unquantifiable highs and lows of love'.
With influences such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan and John Smith, you can hear the folk troubadours spilling over, when an artist is brave enough to leave themselves exposed with nothing to hide behind, stripped back, vulnerable, when the emotion communicated with the listener is at its best.
Chris has two more single releases planned in the next three months, with more music expected at the end of the year.

13 March
