After missing out on having Archer play at Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival in 2016, we’re chuffed to welcome him to The Old Church on the Hill for an intimate concert on Fri 17 March 2017.
With a support set from Graciana Holland, this will be a truly special night on the tunes!
About our artists:
In the 21st century, Archer is a true rarity. His weathered blues are his stories—harvested from the raw distance that passes under his heels.
Archer’s songs follow the seams of Australia’s valleys and mountain ranges, songs driven by a restless and pure geography. A craft honed under the open sky—from Murray River picking crews to the remote northern reaches of the Australian continent.
Growing up with The Hollands! and touring full time, Graciana was given the opportunity to explore new cultures and traditions, traveling throughout the USA, Canada, SE Asia and Australia. She is an accomplished songwriter and composer with work appearing on The Hollands! albums and her own single, Caged Bird, released in 2015. She plays guitar, ukulele, and piano but her voice is the stand out. With a delicate delivery, Graciana keeps listeners on the edge of their seats wanting to hear more.
The Old Church on the Hill is located on the corner of Harkness and Russell Streets, Quarry Hill, Bendigo.
The Singer/Songwriter Showcase events, staged at the Old Church by the BB&RMF crew on a semi-regular basis, are an opportunity to enjoy a House Concert vibe in a public venue. The door charge is generally $15 for adults ($10 concession) and, although refreshments are available for sale, the focus is on THE MUSIC. Proceeds from drink sales go to supporting Bendigo Sustainability Group – BSG and also support our Festival to keep presenting these magnificent musicians for your listening pleasure. Sound production is supplemented at the Old Church on the Hill by our friends at Muso’s Stuff and 100% of the door takings are able to be shared between the performers with thanks to our valued sponsors at Kensey Care (www.kenseycare.com.au).
