Old Songs is partnering with Falcon House Concerts, Folk Music Society of NY, Branford Folk Music Society, Folk Song Society of Greater Boston, and the Folklore Society of Greater Washington to bring you the Livestream from the UK Concert Series from the Falcon Studio in Whitby, UK

Master guitarist, singer, and songwriter Archie Fisher is Scotland’s foremost troubadour. Archie was born in Glasgow into a large singing family, which yielded three professional singers—Archie and his sisters Ray and Cilla. Music was always in the house: his father’s appreciation of many musical styles (opera, vaudeville, and traditional ballads) proved to be a heavy influence on Archie’s own music, while his mother, a native Gaelic speaker from the Outer Hebrides, was a strong influence on the lyrical quality of his songwriting.
