Archie Fisher is one of Scotland’s foremost singer/songwriters with a career and influence that spans from the folk club era of the early '60s to the “young trad” music movement of today. His masterful guitar-playing and songs of life in the Scottish highlands and border towns have made him a popular performer with audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Archie was the host of BBC Scotland’s long-running folk radio show “Traveling Folk” for 25 years. He has recorded and toured with The Clancy Brothers, Tom Paxton, Tommy Makem, Silly Wizard, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Garnet Rogers. His songs have been recorded by Fairport Convention, Stan Rogers, and Eva Cassidy among many others.
Born into a musical family with a Gaelic-speaking mother from the Outer Hebrides, Archie’s songwriting has been influenced by both centuries-old traditional ballads and by the folk musicians he came of age listening to: Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and others who used songs as vehicles for contemporary issues and protest. His music is a link between the Celtic and American folk-song traditions. Archie’s most recent album, A Silent Song, is his seventh solo recording, with traditional and contemporary songs that he calls “very dear friends, worthy of respect in their own right.”
We are grateful for the support of Champlain Valley Senior Community for this concert.
