Master guitarist, singer and songwriter Archie Fisher is one of Scotland’s foremost troubadours . Archie was born in Glasgow into a large singing family. Archie first became interested in folk music through the Skiffle era of the late 1950’s under the influences of performers such as Lonnie Donegan and Johnny Duncan.
Later, the recording of the Weavers at Carnegie Hall also had a profound effect on his approach to music and his political outlook. He began a partnership with Canadian songwriter Garnet Rogers. They toured throughout North America together, and Garnet produced two of his albums during this period, as well as playing with John Renbourn and Bert Jansch.
