The Marina Florance Band, whose music has been described as genre defying and crossing the boundaries of folk, country, acoustic and blues, play Norwich Arts Centre on Wednesday (8pm).

Hailing from Norwich, Marina Florance is making a name for herself on the folk scene, having performed at some of the UK's most prestigious folk festivals including the Cambridge Folk Festival and Cambridge Strawberry Fayre.

Her collection of well-crafted songs appeal to a wide audience - the music is acoustic with touches of country, pop and even rock influences.

Marina formed her band earlier this year with co-writer and guitarist Mick Kennedy.

Ray Taylor recently added percussion to the mix and the duo became a trio.

Support comes from Paul Bullen Band, based round the songwriter from the countryside between London and Cambridge.
