"one of Britain's finest song interpreters"— Sing Out!
Master guitarist and beloved worldwide as one of the finest trational singers of all time, Archie Fisher, MBE, is recogized as Scotland's foremost folk troubadour with a career spanning over four decades.
A talent that transcends generations and genres (Scottish indie band Frightened Rabbit had him sing on their song "The Work"), Fisher came out of the vital UK folk scene that spawned the Incredible String Band, John Renbourn, Steelye Span and Bert Jansch. It's been seven years since Fisher's last release, Windward Away, a collection of introspective ballads that evoke the wild and rough beauty of the Scottish border country.
Archie is known throughout the country as the host of BBC Radio Scotland's award winning "Travelling Folk" program, which he has presented for over 25 years. Recognized for his contributions to Scottish folk music, in 2007 he was inducted into the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame and in 2006 was awarded the MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for services to traditional music.
On September 18th, Fisher returns with his first album in seven years, A Silent Song, followed by a tour of select North American cities. We are extremely pleased and honoured to be presenting Archie Fisher in Victoria.
