Posted on: July 5th, 2019 by Russell Gusetti

Call in your reservations for our November 17 show with Archie Fisher to 401-725-9272.

Master guitarist, singer and songwriter Archie Fisher is Scotland's foremost troubadour and is known throughout the country as the host of BBC Radio Scotland's award-winning "Travelling Folk" show, which he has presented for more than 30 years. Recognized for his contributions to Scottish folk music, he was inducted into the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame and in 2006 was awarded an MBE, (Distinguished Member of the British Empire), a prestigious honor nominated by his peers and bestowed by Queen Elizabeth for services to traditional music in 2007. Fisher was born in Glasgow into a large singing family, which yielded three professional singers – Archie and his sisters Ray and Cilla Fisher. Fisher's first self-titled album was recorded in 1968. During the mid-1970s he joined the revived pairing of Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy. As well as performing as a backing musician and arranger for Makem & Clancy, he also produced a series of albums with them and got involved in record production with the dynamic Scottish band Silly Wizard. His  "Windward Away" release on Red House, a collection of introspective ballads that evoke the wild and rough beauty of the Scottish Border country, achieved widespread acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2015, seven years in the making, "A Silent Song" finds Archie combining original compositions with his interpretations of classic songs for a wonderful addition to his distinguished catalog.
