Making a very welcome return visit to the club, Flossie is a French-born singer who became involved in the British folk scene in 2000-2001 while she was on a teacher exchange in North East England. Her repertoire is very wide and spans various genres. It includes well-known songs by Allan Taylor, Kieran Halpin and Colum Sands and she also performs wonderful renditions of Edith Piaf's eternal favourites No Regrets and La Vie en Rose. She is a sensational performer who intrigues audiences with her superb voice and her comments on the peculiarities of our own English language.
The Hut People are accordionist Sam Pirt and percussionist Gary Hammond. Together they have gained a reputation as one of the most entertaining acts to appear on the folk scene in a long while. In their surprisingly engaging and often hilarious show, they perform a truly unique high-octane blend of folk music from around the world - perfectly formed & embellished with a foot stomping accordion and mind-boggling array of exotic percussion (with some Quebecois foot percussion & dancing thrown in for good measure too!).
Two acts we know will get our new season off to a flying start.
