Flossie is a charming and popular French singer who started getting involved on the UK folk scene in 2001 while she was on a teachers' exchange in the North East of England. She loved it so much she ended up staying there.  Flossie has great warmth and humour and totally engages an audience not just with her  hilarious franglais/geordie observations and wit, but with the most astonishing voice, strong, soaring and emotive.

In the last 11 years, her profile has gone from strength to strength, playing at folk clubs and festivals all over the UK and beyond.  Her repertoire extends from well established folk songs to jazz standards, blues numbers to Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel's classics.   She loves high-energy songs with bags of  "vavavoum", and will soon have an audience singing along. Chosen in recent years to support not only Show of Hands on their County Towns tour, but also Fairport Convention on their major Winter tour.  

This is the second concert in our January series of ‘Even Cosier’ concerts. Starting at the earlier time 
of 6.30pm with doors at 6pm this will enable people to get home more easily, especially if winter weather conditions prevail.  

The pub will be open for meals from 5pm

“Flossie’s great! She came over from France and wowed everybody with her sensational voice, her gutsy guitar style, eclectic repertoire and franglais patter”
Vin Garbutt

“To have a song covered by a voice with the beauty, clarity and passion of Flossie is a pleasure that should be enjoyed by all songwriters”
Kieran Halpin

“Here’s a sensational performer. She intrigues listeners with her quaint French-Geordie accent and charms them with her stories and ready laughter. Yet it’s her singing that bowls them over. An artist’s artist, a people’s artist, here’s a mammoth talent emphatically radiating that magical X-factor. A veritable show stopper. “
Wheaten Aston Festival
