Fran & Flora

4th May at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Performance under marquee by multi-award-nominated experimental/folk duo Fran & Flora, captivating audiences with their reinventions of traditional Eastern European melodies and songs.

Francesca Ter-Berg (cello/vox) and Flora Curzon (violin/vox) draw inspiration from archival recordings, recovered manuscripts and studying with traditional masters, infusing source material with drones, loops, free improvisation and electronics to create a ‘border-defying’ aesthetic (Mojo).

Unfurl, the culmination of three years creative studio work with producer Sam Beste (The Vernon Spring), was released in February’19 to critical acclaim: ’An album of beguiling beauty’ – The Wire; ‘Brave and classy’ – Robin Denselow, The Guardian; BBC Radio 3 Music Planet ‘Album of the Year’/Amazon ‘Best Seller’/AIM Award ‘Best New Act’.

Known for their engaging live performances, the duo has performed across the UK and beyond, including Kings Place (Songlines Encounters), Cafe Oto, Hidden Notes, Between the Lines Festival, Shambala, EFG London Jazz Festival, Smugglers Festival, Shtetl Neukolln (Berlin), Ancienne Belgique (Brussels), Casa Del Popolo and KlezKanada (Montreal).

Their 2nd studio album, Precious Collection, will be released on Hidden Notes Records in April 2024.

They have been supported by PRS Women Make Music, Help Musicians, BBC Introducing and Arts Council England.
