Ticket only event will take place in the downstairs function room, starting at 8.00pm (doors open 7.30pm).
Flossie first got involved in the British folk scene in 2000-2001 while she was on a teacher exchange in the North East of England. After 12 years of teaching English full time in secondary schools in the South of France, she decided to apply for a job as a French teacher in England, as she felt it would boost her English to live abroad for a year. She ended up working in Stockton-on-Tees whilst living in Darlington:
"great part of the world to improve on your English, like".
As she had been singing for years in France before that, she found it quite natural to turn up at the Darlington Folk Club one night to meet the locals and sing a song..... not realising then that it was going to be the beginning of a new life in England.
Several years on, she has become an accomplished performer playing at folk clubs and festivals all over the UK (and beyond) and supporting acts such as Fairport Convention and Show of Hands.
Flossie’s powerful yet sensitive rendition of songs combined with her quaint northern twang and humorous banter will no doubt entertain and leave you with a smile 🙂
Her collection of 13 albums (so far) is a reminder of how much work and dedication she has put into her music career: from well established folk songs to jazz standards, from blues numbers to Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel’s classics, her wide répertoire appeals to all.
