Archie Roach: Tell Me Why 

A new work sharing stories and songs from Archie's new memoir and companion album. 

Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was.  He is Archie Roach.  His new memoir Tell Me Why (Simon and Schuster) is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and also of a great love story. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.  The companion album Tell Me Why (Bloodlines), considered Roach’s 18 song ‘magnum opus’, re-imagines eleven songs which have defined his extraordinary career. Roach voices the joy, pain and hope he found on his path through these songs to become the legendary singer-songwriter and storyteller that he is today – beloved and respected by fans worldwide.

 

The performance scheduled for Fri 19 Jun 7.30pm has been cancelled in line with current advice regarding COVID-19. If you have purchased tickets to this show we will be in contact shortly. Archie Roach has been rescheduled to Thu 15 Oct 7.30pm
