About the event

Based in the Hudson Valley, since 2001, the electro-acoustic Dark Cabaret Rock duo who play largely within the steampunk and Mythic Festival circuits, has released 7 CDs (most recently Zen Ghost, Oct 2022) and toured across the US and in Europe since 2005. When not on tour, they create the world of their mystical and magical creature, the Batfrog. Scott, when he was the bass player for Deep Wound and Outpatients in the western Massachusetts hardcore punk explosion of the 80s, had always connected with the pen and ink art of the punk scene, like the styles from Raymond Pettibone and John Holstrom. It inspired him to do his own drawings which he revisited and expanded on when Frenchy and the Punk started performing. Samantha, who was born in France and raised in England, had gone from studying dance and piano from a very early age, to focusing her creative energies in sculpture and painting while living in NYC. She was a student at both the Art Student’s League as well as the Academy of Design before delving back into the performing arts as the singer and percussionist for Frenchy and the Punk. Both bats and frogs have symbolism that vary depending on culture. For FnP, they see the two as symbols of rebirth and transformation. A mystical creature inspired by the natural world, a purveyor of good fortune. Welcome to the world of Frenchy and the Punk’s Batfrogs. An odd and eclectic world where there is beauty in darkness, comfort and inspiration in sound, and a delight in the mysterious and unknown.
