Archie Fisher

October 28, 2016 - October 28, 2016

Traditional Scottish ballad singer, master guitarist and songwriter. The evening will be a rare opportunity to experience the craftsmanship of master guitarist, singer, and songwriter Archie Fisher, who has been touring and recording since the 1960s. Archie was born in Glasgow into a large singing family, which yielded three professional singers—Archie and his sisters Ray and Cilla. Constant music combined with his father’s appreciation of many musical styles (opera, vaudeville, traditional ballads) proved to be a heavy influence on Archie’s music, while his mother, a native Gaelic speaker from the Outer Hebrides, was a strong influence on the lyrical quality of his songwriting. Fisher’s repertoire has a perspective that few can share and his interpretations of traditional songs, his own compositions and the material of his fellow contemporary songwriters are beloved by fans on both sides of the Atlantic. While he is a prolific songwriter and recording artist, Fisher insists that his greatest love is live performance. His performances at Old Songs never disappoint.
