Debbie Armour – Bob Leslie’s guest on Transatlantic Conversations on Sunday 18 November, 2pm – 4pm
Debbie Armour is a Glasgow based musician, working primarily with traditional song from Britain and beyond. Broadly, her work is motivated by ideas of persistence, resonance and deep cultural roots.
After working with artists like Alasdair Roberts, Alex Neilson and Howie Reeve, she has launched a solo project, Burd Ellen. Working with multi-instrumentalist Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Barrett’s Dottled Beauty) and pianist Lucy Duncan (Luki), the group uses traditional song to explore women’s narratives, as well as the metaphor and symbolism that ornaments their stories. Burd Ellen will record their debut EP in Dec 2018.
During the summer of 2018, Debbie worked with Frankie Armstrong, Alasdair Roberts and Ben Webb to make a record of unaccompanied songs under the project title Green Ribbons. This is due for an early 2019 release.
