Frankie Archer

Tue 21May2024

The Nailsworth Festival Richard Valentine Memorial Folk Concert


At Ruskin Mill, GL6 0LA


Frankie Archer is fresh on the scene and shaking up genres and traditions, sharing lesser-told sides of stories, championing women, challenging perspectives and calling for a fairer future, to a unique mix of synths, samples, drum tracks, earthy fiddle, and voice.

Her imaginative and bold fusion of genres shows her Northumbrian fiddle roots, her deep love of electronic music and her immersion in soulful folk songs from the North East of England and around the world.

Frankie’s music has been played on BBC Radio 2, 3 and 6Music. ‘Over the Border’ was chosen by Fatea for their Showcase Session and ‘Close the Coalhouse Door’ was included on the BBC Introducing Mixtape.

 “Gorgeous trad playing and creative vocal twists... a fascinating and intoxicating blend of the contemporary and the traditional.” - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
