Flossie Malavialle is a French singer who started getting involved in the British folk scene in 2000-2001 while she was on a teacher exchange in the North East of England.

“Flossie has a voice as clear and tuneful as a lark, with a pureness of quality to stop you in your tracks in the forest of a song”  - Colum Sands

“Flossie’s great! She came over from France and wowed everybody with her sensational voice, her gutsy guitar style, eclectic repertoire and franglais patter”  - Vin Garbutt

Her repertoire is very open as she likes all sorts of different music genres. Her songs include famous numbers, including Allan Taylor's "Roll on the day", Paul McCartney's "Early Days", Abba's "Slipping through my fingers", Colum Sands' "The child who asks why", Starrett and Laird's " John Condon" but also Edith Piaf's eternal favourites "No regrets", "La vie en rose"... or Jacques Brel's "Amsterdam" and "Ne me quitte pas"...

17.11 Session
1.12 Session


During 17 years of part-time touring, Kip Winter (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) and Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar, banjo) built a reputation for fine songs, stunning harmonies and spontaneous, (occasionally outrageous!) off-the-wall humour.

Dave Wilson is now recognised as one of the UK’s best contemporary, acoustic songwriters. A great wordsmith, his songs are sometimes challenging, often lyrical, but always poetic and have been widely covered, including “Storm Around Tumbledown” recorded by Vin Garbutt, amongst many others.

Kip Winter has simply one of the best voices in the business, delivering power and emotion in equal measure. In the past she has sung everything from opera to soul and jazz, but is at her best (and happiest) singing folk and blues.

After becoming full-time, professional musicians in 2012, Winter Wilson have gone on to be one of the hardest-working duos on the UK acoustic music scene.
