Biography
Hailing from France, Floriane Blancke was raised on her grandfather's hungarian gypsy-music background. She is a talented harpist, fiddler, pianist and vocalist who has been embraced into Irish Traditional Music circles over the past number of years. The grand-daughter of Jazz musician Stanislas Suranyi, her music has been greatly influenced by this native Hungarian Gypsy style. Floriane has a rich music heritage that combines both Irish and European celtic stylistic elements to define her own unique approach to traditional harping. Commencing her musical career at the age of 16 in the rock influenced band Ogrok and first encountering the traditional Irish genre through membership of France's Fairy Dance group, she has gained considerable experience through her professional and award-winning performances. After moving to Ireland from France to pursue a full-time career in Traditional Music in 2005, Floriane is now recognised as a skilled harpist and has performed with luminaries such as Sharon Shannon, Seamus Begley, Tim Edey, Mary Staunton, Johnny Óg Connelly , Martin Tourish, and Ciaran Tourish . While for the most part, Floriane's musical collaborations are traditional, she has shown her versatility in sharing the stage with contemporary artists such as Shane McGowan of The Pogues and the world renowned vocalist Patti Smith.
