Studio Guest Debbie Armour with Bob Leslie on Transatlantic Conversations 24 Mar 2019 2-4 pm
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 new 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 recently released their first 8-track album Silver Came.
Bob will be playing a selection from the album and talking to Debbie about this and her collaborations and projects
