Set times 1:15pm and 6:15pm! Frenchy and the Punk is a “unique two-person folk punk cabaret powerhouse.” Their show is a carnival of two that will take you from the Moulin Rouge to CBGBs and back again. Imagine Siouxsie Sioux and Dee Dee Ramone had a duo that was inspired by Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Toulouse Lautrec and Deepak Chopra, this is what it might sound like. A rollicking flapper folk punk steampunk cabaret with Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals. The duo is made up of bilingual French-born dancer/artist turned singer and percussionist Samantha Stephenson and guitarist Scott Helland who was a founding member of the legendary hardcore punk band Deep Wound with Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis. Touring across the US and Europe since 2005, this fiery duo bring their danceable, creative, eclectic foot stomper of a show to World of Faeries Festival 2018.
