Information:

Lotus Family and the Cube Microplex are extremely honoured to bring you the breath taking, Fran & Flora to Bristol for their Cube debut

"It’s all about dynamics. Violinist Flora Curzon and cellist Francesca Ter-Berg take Eastern European / Eurasian folk and infuse it with the quiet-loud sense of post rock exploration that unites the likes of Mogwai and Jambinai." - Mojo

In the past

"They’ve contributed to the sound of folk guru Sam Lee, Portico Quartet and, notably, the Neo-prog of Charlie Cawood’s excellent album The Divine Abstract." The Wire

"They have gone to Belgium to work with the brilliant Tcha Limberger and to the Transylvanian village of Beica de Jos near Târgu Mures to study with fiddler Marcel Ramba, half Jewish, half Gypsy. Flora also went to work with violinist Marin Bunea in Chisinâu, Moldova, who played in the excellent Other Europeans band. “Working with musicians like this is not about ‘unlearning’ anything,” she says, “it’s actually the opposite. It makes you realise just how much you’ve got to learn.” - Songlines

Delicately navigating the question of authenticity they've spent years developing a sound which is simultaneously reverent to the traditions they have been studying as well as deeply personal.

They have appeared live in session on BBC4’s Woman's Hour, Cerys Matthews’ 6 Music Show and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM.
