Future Folk: Contemporary Sounds from Traditional Roots

Kings Place welcomes Frankie Archer to Future Folk, an artist who has exploded onto the electrofolk scene with music that transcends stereotypes using a combination of manipulated samples, synths, drum tracks and earthy Northumbrian fiddle and voice to capture her audience.


Frankie’s aim? To shake up genres and traditions, challenge perspectives and call for a fairer future. Winner of the 2023 Christian Raphael Prize, Frankie has been featured on Later… With Jools Holland and championed by tastemakers at BBC Radio 2 and 6Music.

Following the release of her debut EP Never So Red (November, 2023), she has supported the likes of Futureheads and The Last Dinner Party. With her unique live set turning heads wherever she goes, Frankie is quickly establishing herself as “one to watch” in the alternative space.

Following a run of headline shows in the spring, and performances at Glastonbury and Deer Shed festivals, Frankie returns to the stage this autumn to coincide with the release of her 2nd EP. Lovely Joan is out now on all streaming platforms.

This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
