About The Event
**We are sorry but this event is now postponed until 2025. Ticket holders will be contacted by email.
Alice Armstrong is a singer-songwriter and entertainer from Surrey, UK, known for her impressive vocal range, unconventional lyrics, long red hair, light-sensitivity glasses and enigmatic stage presence. Alice’s voice and songs vary widely in emotional tone, reflecting a complex personal history.
Expect a soulful, dynamic, genre-busting performance packed with world class musicianship and wry British repartee. Her personal and provocative lyrical content is served with an enigmatic physical performance reminiscent of the likes of Janis Joplin, Tina Turner and Lizzo.
Alice has achieved a truly remarkable amount; she has strutted the stages of some the biggest rhythm & blues festivals in both the UK and mainland Europe, performed at legendary venues such as the 100 Club and Ronnie Scotts, reached the top 20 played lists of the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association and Blues Matters Magazine, has been nominated for four different categories in the UK Blues awards, as well as performing at the 2023 Blues awards ceremony.
So far in 2023, Alice has released three singles, ‘Speed Dial’, ‘Graveyard Shift’ and ‘Upbeat Baby’, performed and toured across Europe, recorded her first EP (to be released in late Summer, 2023) and is booked to play Joe Bonamassa’s prestigious Keeping the Blues Alive Mediterranean Cruise this August. An article in the March edition of ERB Magazine says this of Alice:
’She’s a born entertainer, with a voice very few people could rival. If you can get to one of her gigs, I would recommend going to hear what could easily be the voice of a generation‘.

From playing a live Under The Apple Tree session for Bob Harris at just 13 years old, Isabella has gone on to perform at iconic London venues such as The Bedford in Balham, The Half Moon in Putney, The Troubadour and a stunning headline show at the Green Note in Camden. She has performed at The Black Deer Festival, Cornbury Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, The British Country Music Festival and Pub In The Park.
Isabella has recently been on tour supporting ‘THE WHO’, where she gave an incredible solo performance at the O2 Arena and continued with the band at Derby, Durham and Brighton. Previous to that, she supported acclaimed, New York based singer songwriter Nell Bryden, on her 2023 UK tour (twelve shows).
Isabella regularly supports Jools Holland on his summer and winter tours and has been doing so since she was seventeen and this continues for the 2023 seasons.
She has been featured on BBC radio and Countryline radio stations and has many songwriting collaborations and credits to her name including a title track for an upcoming new TV show.
