About The Event
Kevin Armstrong is the guitarist you may never have heard of but have most certainly heard. He has had a stellar journey since the early 1980s as sideman for David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Morrissey, Sinéad O’Connor, Prefab Sprout, Thomas Dolby and host of others. He has played with a huge range of stars from Roy Orbison to Brian Eno. Grace Jones to Paul McCartney, Sandie Shaw to the Eagles of Death Metal, Gil Evans to Alien Sex Fiend.
His one-man show ‘Absolute Beginner’ is a highly entertaining look behind the scenes at some of the biggest names in Rock and Roll and his experiences of working, playing and travelling with them.
He presents a riveting mix of candid and funny anecdotes as well as dazzling guitar and voice versions of some of the iconic music he has helped to make in a five decade long career as a trusted sidekick to the stars.
“Kevin does what I pretend to do, Kevin’s a proper musician” – David Bowie.
