Following their still set at Hidden Notes and recent news that they have signed to the festivals record label Hidden Notes Records (with their second album due to be released in April) the multi-award-nominated experimental/contemporary folk string duo Fran & Flora perform an intimate in-store set at Sound Records.
Their music sits in two camps, both steeped in tradition, with material drawn directly from archival recordings, recovered manuscripts and years of study with traditional music masters, whilst simultaneously garnering a contemporary and avant-garde aesthetic, speaking to the more classical and experimental listener. As string players Fran & Flora’s collaborations together and separately include performing with the likes of Tom Skinner, Portico Quartet, Imogen Heap, Riz Ahmed, Sam Lee, Talvin Singh, Jocelyn Pook, Hannah Peel and The Vernon Spring.
