Bertie Armstrong is a singer and banjo player based in Newcastle, he blends a mix of traditional Appalachian old time and blues with original songs. Bertie’s song writing has been greatly influenced by artists such as Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt, as well as traditional songs from America and the U.K.


“Multi-instrumentalist Maisie May and Anna Hughes use open tunings, finger style guitar, and samples deftly woven together with spoken words and vocals to create strikingly innovative, newly imagined folkscapes.”
