Archer

  • Kew Court House 188 High Street Kew, VIC, 3101 Australia (map)

Archer sings the great lost folk songs of Australia.

Archer is an old time sing-song man. He works the fruit picking rounds, sits under the sky a lot and drives a car if he has to. He’s earned his singing spirit with his many hours of being out with the country, getting it under his skin the only real way you can.

Archer’s longtime wanders, his longtime bush dreams, and his deep and patient listening also allow him to coax the hidden old folk songs of this country to creep out of their holes and dusty old wardrobes, to fall from the branches until he hears them. You probably haven’t heard these songs before, the forgotten stories by the forgotten writers of the wayback.

In 2016 he toured Canada playing Ottawa Bluesfest, Montreal International Jazz Festival and Quebec’s Festival d’Ete. He has also supported major touring acts including Pokey Le Farge, Justin Townes Earles, Calexico, CW Stoneking and the Cat Empire.
