Lorraine Butler & Judy Armstrong
For her sixth record, KIDS (for all ages), Judy collaborated with her (late) husband and accomplished professional, Tink Robinson, to write, perform and record the fun-filled, entertaining songs. As well as singing the music from KIDS to work with children, Tink and Judy would use the songs to bring out the playfulness in adults. Judy also worked with her husband in writing music, performing, recording, keynote speaking, coaching and facilitating workshops.
Tink and Judy were highly regarded for their popular theatrical shows in Heritage Fort Steele, BC, Canada where, for 13 summer seasons until 1989, they produced, wrote, directed and performed at the Wild Horse Theater. Audiences loved listening to Judy sing and then watch her transform from her beautiful 1890’s gown to play the outrageously funny old ‘Granny’, a character she created at the Fort and which she often uses in her work to help people laugh at themselves.
