a voice ... powerful, versatile and expressive

"You'd be hard-pressed to find a singer with a voice as powerful, versatile and expressive"

"Whether it's a song of our times or a hundred year old ballad Frankie Armstrong can make it vivid and real to us as few singers can. The urgency and intensity of her oft-unaccompanied singing cuts through the centuries, holds the audience spellbound".

Frankie will also be presenting a workshop on Sunday 19th March 2006. See this article for details.
