Fran & Mike started playing folk, roots & blues in the late 1970s. Warm, witty and passionate about music, this very talented duo will be performing on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon at the festival.
Extract from review by Lewis Harris, Blues in Britain magazine
“This was a first time visit to Bluesnights for this very talented duo who regaled us with a rich eclectic mix of classic blues, soul and jazz, plus four of their own compositions! Mike used three guitars, two vintage – a Gibson J45 and a Gibson ESI 25 -plus a Chinese-built resonator. Fran played a Fender Jazz bass plus a flute, though her main instrument is her exquisite voice with which she leads in the vocals department. Think Bonnie Raitt meets Rory Block and you get some idea of the quality and range.”
