FRAN AND FLORA IN CONCERT
LONDON'S BEST KEPT MUSICAL SECRET
1 JUNE 7.30pm
Fran and Flora in concert
Fran & Flora are a London based contemporary eastern-European folk music inspired violin and cello duo with a distinctive intimate performance style. Their debut album ‘unfurl’ was released in February 2019 to critical acclaim.
Their outstanding musicianship combined with compelling arrangements have led to their selection as BBC Music Introducing Artists 2018.
Delicately navigating the question of authenticity, the duo has spent years developing a sound which is simultaneously reverent to the traditions they have been studying.
Fran & Flora embarked on this musical journey together following many years collaborating with ground-breaking artists including Talvin Singh (Mercury Prize Winner), Sam Lee & Friends (BBC Folk Award winner), Hejira, Dunajska Kapelye, the London Klezmer Quartet, Cosmo Sheldrake and Frank London (Klezmatics, US).
