Don Armstrong has been hailed as a “Tucson legend” and “folk treasure,” and has performed in clubs, coffee houses, concert halls and festivals across the US, as well as on tv and radio. His voice, according to one critic, “has an inherent sweetness (along with) an ability to sing seamless lines, the sign of a master singer,” while another simply said “he has the voice of a twenty-five year old.” The Arizona Daily Star referred to him as a “consummate songwriter,” and his original songs, which have a Southwestern, traditional Americana flavor with a 1930’s flair, have been recorded by artists nationwide and sung and enjoyed worldwide. Playing guitar and five string banjo, Don was part of the duo Don & Victoria Armstrong for 42 years before Victoria’s passing in 2014. Together, they recorded ten albums, each one receiving national acclaim. Today, Don leads the popular Tucson band, "Don Armstrong & The Whiskeypalians" and tours some with Liz & Pete (Liz Cerepanya & Peter Dalton Ronstadt). The Ronstadt Record Company recently released Don's first CD, "Mother Don't Give Up On Me Now."
