Super gig from French singer Flossie Malavialle at Croydon Folk Club last night! How many French people have a Geordie English accent ??

She's one of the best, and a very nice lady too. Her interpretations of the songs of Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf are superb.

Most hard working and well travelled French folk singer I have heard ~ now a naturalised British citizen who I believe has been here over 10 years now. Also in a duo with Keith Donnelly as Dark Horses

A true professional singer/entertainer

From an Alcester Festival.... 'Why is it only cotton socks that get blessed?'...

Is this in the right thread? But maybe cotton socks were the finest of the day and this was a way of suggesting that the person referred to was a stand godly person of quality?

It is usually 'her' cotton socks that get blessed, rather than 'his'. If someone were to bless my cotton socks, unless they were looking at a rather attractive picture of me when I was less than three years old, I would take it as a patronising put-down (even if kindly meant).

Was Herga Kitty quoting from Flossie Malavialle at a festival?

Yes, I was quoting Flossie, from a set she played in Alcester Town Hall at one of the festivals!

I think Flossie has probably been here nearer twenty years than ten Ray.

I think her performance was around 1/3 songs and 2/3 very entertaing banter. Ist set was 42 minutes and the second was 55 minutes, and she finished with a rip roaring version of Erma Franklin's Piece of my Heart!!!

Oops, wrong quote picked up there. Should have been:

And Richard, Georgiansilver picked a very untypical example of Flossie's repertoire. She mostly fingerpicks, rather than strums, and sings in a strange "Darlington French" accent. This one's more like it:

Flossie Again

And her duo appearances with Keith Donnelly are a hoot:

Flossie and Keith

Seen her on several occasions, and found her mainly very entertaining, although on the one occasion, she did rather overdo the banter, at the expense of getting too few songs in, yes, roughly in the proportions mentioned by Bonzo above.
Reminded me of an incident with a different artiste long ago who was told by the club chairman, "We paid you to sing, not to talk"!

There are lots of people singing traditional songs, myself included, but that does not make them traditional singers.

Plenty of the true traditional singers ie learnt at mothers/ fathers / uncles knee had repertoires that could be considered entertaining because if they weren't then who would have put up with them down at the pub?

As Flossie says - she calls a cat a cat.

You have to know French idiomatic expression to appreciate that, but she explains it and makes it v funny.

We bought her latest CD of 12 which is wonderful. She recorded for a live CD recently, which she expects to be out in the Autumn.
