Frankie Armstrong in Conversation with Vic Gammon (2007)
Tynefolk, a folk club which at the time ran at the Black Bull in Blaydon, under the auspices of Danny and Joyce McLeod, made a series of interviews with visiting performers. The set of interviews, conducted by different people associated with the club, forms a very interesting resource for the history of the folk revival.
Frankie Armstrong, now in her 80s but still active, is one of the leading women singers of the British folk revival. Not only is she an accomplished solo performer but during the course of her career developed skills in conducting voice workshops. She was instrumental in the creation of the Natural Voice Network. This interview discusses her life and work.
