The Willows Folk Club in Arundel welcomes singer Flossie Malavialle on Wednesday, September 23.

Club spokesman Chris Davis said: “Originally hailing from France, where she worked as an English teacher, Flossie came to the UK in 2000 where she swapped roles and began teaching French! Having always sung in her native country, Flossie began performing regularly in her local folk clubs and from there moved on to take the national folk circuit by storm.

“Flossie is highly respected by many of the folk scene’s biggest names. Stylistically, Flossie’s repertoire is comparable with artists such as Eva Cassidy, encompassing traditional and contemporary folk, lots of old favourites, hints of jazz and even the occasional song in French. Perhaps most notable for her awe-inspiring voice, able to veer from warm, gentle, emotive and soulful to gutsy and powerful, Flossie is also a great guitarist and a sparkling personality with a fabulous gift for relaxed and humorous audience communication, and always serves up magical performances wherever she plays.”

Entrance is £5. The Willows Folk Club now meets every Wednesday at 7.45pm in the function room of Arundel Football Club, Mill Road, Arundel. For more information about the club, visit www.willowsfolkclub.org or call 07790 511054.
