Frankie Armstrong

29 June 2012

Frankie ArmstrongWe were delighted to welcome Frankie to the Goose for the first time in conjunction with a voice workshop which she was running in South Norwood the following day.

Frankie Armstrong began singing with the skiffle boom in 1957, moving through the British folk song revival of the early 1960s. She also studied, performed and recorded with leading figures of the folk revival such as Louis Killen, Ewan MacColl and Bert Lloyd.

Since 1962, Frankie has built up a repertoire of British songs and ballads, which, along with contemporary British songs, still form the basis of her musical vocabulary. Her repertoire consists of rural, industrial, music hall and contemporary songs
