ARCHIE ROACH WITH PAUL GRABOWSKY

PART OF PROGRESS – A FESTIVAL OF IDEAS.

Archie Roach is one of Australia’s most treasured performers. For close to 30 years his recorded output has gifted the country with a songbook of remarkable import.

Simple, noble and direct lyrics in timeless musical settings, combined with his inimitable heartfelt delivery, these characteristics have etched the core songs into the national psyche. Took the Children Away presaged the Kevin Rudd apology by some 20 years, and the gracious optimism of It’s Not Too Late seems to encapsulate the spirit of the Uluru Statement’s proposed Makarrata Commission. And as our country, with or without its leaders, evolves a new concept of itself by embracing its shared history with the First Nations, Roach’s art will help push the progress.

Paul Grabowsky has a long and fruitful history of collaboration with Archie Roach and his late partner Ruby Hunter. This concert partners the songwriter with Grabowsky on piano and the Monash String Sinfonia playing arrangements by Erkki Veltheim, who created the striking orchestrations for Gurrumul’s groundbreaking final album.

Grab your seats now. It’s simply unmissable.

‘Archie Roach is one of the greatest Australian performing artists.’
