Les Barker plus Flossie Malavialle

For this concert we have a double-header consisting of two highly entertaining artists, both of whom have proved extremely popular when visiting our club before.

Les Barker writes strange poems and comes from Manchester, but he's now
Welsh. He was an accountant before he became a professional idiot. He's
written 85 books, which sell in large numbers at his gigs because people
don't quite believe what they've just heard. His poems have spawned a
number of folk heroes: Jason and the Arguments, Cosmo the Fairly Accurate
Knife Thrower, Captain Indecisive and Spot of the Antarctic, to name but

Making a very welcome return visit to the club,  Flossie is a French-born singer who became involved in the British folk scene in 2000-2001 while she was on a teacher exchange in North East England. Her repertoire is very wide and spans various genres. It includes well-known songs by Allan Taylor, Kieran Halpin and Colum Sands and she also performs wonderful renditions of Edith Piaf's eternal favourites No Regrets and La Vie en Rose.  She is a sensational performer who intrigues audiences with her superb voice and her comments on the peculiarities of our own English language.
