Event description

Description

Master guitarist Archie Fisher is one of Scotland’s foremost folksinger/ songwriters. He is known throughout the U.K. as the host of BBC Radio Scotland’s award-winning 'Travelling Folk' programme, which he presented for over 25 years. Recognized for his contributions to Scottish folk music, in 2007 he was inducted into the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame and in 2006 was awarded an MBE for services to traditional music. The most recent recognition of his art came in 2008 when he was granted the Tradition Bearers Award from the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival in Canada. Archie was born in Glasgow into a large singing family, which yielded three professional singers, Archie and his sisters Ray and Cilla Fisher. Constant music, combined with his father’s appreciation of many musical styles (opera, music hall, traditional ballads) had a strong impact on Archie’s musical development, while his mother, a native Gaelic speaker from the Outer Hebrides, was a strong influence on the lyrical quality of his singing and songwriting.

The concert will be held at the Second Presbyterian Church, 96th St & Central Park West,7:30 pm.
Contribution: general public $25, members $20. Tickets will also be available at the door at the time of the concert.
