Concert: Archie Fisher, Scotland's Foremost Troubador

Legends: Archie Fisher, in concert

Archie Fisher is Scotland’s foremost troubadour. He is a stunning singer of traditional and contemporary songs, a fine songwriter, and a master guitarist. Hailing from a large singing family in Glasgow, those musical beginnings have propelled him through five decades as a performer, a documentarian, and host of BBC Radio Scotland’s award-winning “Travelling Folk” show. He is a Member of the British Empire, or MBE, an honor recognizing "distinguished service to the arts" and an inductee in the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame.

Archie has performed with Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy. He toured extensively in North America with Canadian songwriter Garnet Rogers as well as with John Renbourn and Bert Jansch.  

The concert takes place at 8:00PM, in the charming simplicity of the John St. Church, 44 John Street, in lower Manhattan, NYC. Archie Fisher’s appearance continues our “Legends” series.

The suggested donation is $22 for the general public, $18 for Folk Music Society members; tickets at the door or on-line. For further information call[masked] or visit our web site. Doors open at 7:30.

This October 11th concert is our event for the 2013 Daniel Pearl World Music Days, an international network of concerts that use the power of music to reaffirm our commitment to tolerance and humanity. The performance will be a superb evening of music in an historic and intimate venue. Traditional music lovers, no matter what it’s called – folk, roots, Americana or Celtic, won’t want to miss this master interpreter of our musical heritage.
