Musical duo makes their B.C. debut

Freddy Francine are taking to the stage at Bozzini’s on Jan. 29

It was love at first sight, or rather, note, for Emmanuel Asprakis when he heard the soulful duo, Freddy & Francine, performing in Bellingham a couple of years ago.

“I first discovered Freddy & Francine performing at the Green Frog in May of 2016 and immediately contacted their agent to have them come to Chilliwack,” says Asprakis, who’s Bozzini’s artistic director. “I instantly fell in love with their sound, it reminded me of a young Johnny Cash and June Carter,” he added.

Now they’re finally here: performing for the first time in British Columbia, Freddy & Francine will be at Bozzini’s Upstairs Lounge on Monday, Jan. 29.

The musical duo’s sound is a blend of genres, including soul, R&B, folk, and Americana, yet their harmonies are perfectly matched, allowing them to deliver emotionally charged sets. Freddy & Francine, whose real names are Lee Ferris and Bianca Caruso, are accomplished musicians in their own right, but, like many great musical pairs, use their personal experiences and feelings for each other to create music audiences can relate to.
