November 2011 (Opening Night!)

is a French born singer who was based in the North East of England.. 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.

There is so much work and dedication that 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 rĂ©pertoire appeals to all.

What sort of songs do you sing?

"I get that question a lot! I like all sorts of different music genres. My songs include famous numbers, including Carole King’s 'So far away', Paul McCartney's 'Early Days', Abba's 'Slipping through my fingers', but also Edith Piaf's eternal favourites 'No regrets', 'La vie en rose'... or Jacques Brel's 'Amsterdam' and 'Ne me quitte pas'...

I also love lively songs such as Willie Nelson's 'On the road again', Kris Kristofferson's 'Bobby McGee' (Janis Joplin way) or The Judds’ 'Girls’night out'. There's also space for lovely ballads such as 'Georgia on my mind' or Frank Sinatra's 'Strangers in the night' as well as jazzy tunes like 'Let's fall in love', 'Misty' or 'Fly me to the moon'.

So even if you have never seen or heard me before, I’m confident there will be something in my rĂ©pertoire to suit your taste! I'm making new friends wherever I sing and am looking forward to seeing you at any of my concerts soon."
