Frankie . . . when I think of you across the sea, you who I only meet at festivals and rallies where big hearts come together for peace, I think of a woman of grace and spunk, of rage and tenderness, of desperate purpose and hungered-for humor. And I listen -- listen to what you refuse to suppress, what you are moved to sing. Of course, this is just from one singer with nerves of steel to another.' --Holly Near Frankie Armstrong has been one of the leading voices on the English folk scene for four decades. She is well known for her powerful a cappella singing of traditional ballads, as well as for her interpretations of modern songs that explore and express personal and social relationships, especially those that focus on the experiences of women. I Heard a Woman Singing was first released as a Flying Fish LP in 1984, and in 1998 it is making its first appearance on CD.
