Fran & Flora

at Kitchen Garden Cafe, Birmingham

This event has been and gone.


Described as 'a string duo bound for glory' by Max Reinhardt (BBC Radio 3) Fran & Flora (Francesca Ter-Berg and Flora Curzon) are quickly becoming one of London's most sought-after bands.

A duo with a distinctive improvisatory and ethereal aesthetic, they draw inspiration from their travels and mentors in eastern Europe and beyond.

Their reputation for mesmerising live shows has sold out venues worldwide. Recent performances include Kings Place, KlezKanada, Latitude Festival, Shtetl Neukeulln and the London Jazz Festival.

They have recently appeared live on BBC 4's Woman's Hour, Radio 3's In Tune, Cerys Matthews' 6 Music show, and Worldwide FM to perform their critically acclaimed debut album, Unfurl (February '19).

Fran & Flora

This new collaboration between violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg combines aspects of traditional string music from Eastern Europe with original compositions and experimental electronics. This project brings together Fran and Flora’s shared love of melodic lyricism, groove, improvisation and experimentation. Influenced by Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Celtic and Breton folk and gypsy music, Fran and Flora combine these traditions with their own unique arrangement style to create a sound that is both timeless and contemporary.
