HOMEGROUND with SPECIAL GUEST ARCHIE FISHER

Music |
14th September 2013

Archie Fisher's repertoire includes interpretations of traditional songs, his own compositions and the material of fellow contemporary songwriters and his song Witch of the Westmorelands is a folk classic which has been recorded by numerous musicians including Barbara Dickson.

One of the “Glasgow Boys and Girls” of the early 60s generation of the Scottish Folk Song Revival, Archie Fisher has had many of his songs covered by other bands and artists and Witch of the Westmerelands and Dark Eyed Molly were the only two songs recorded by the legendary Canadian Stan Rogers, which Stan had not written himself.

Homeground consist of singer Thea, piper Becky Taylor, Seamus Heffernan on bass, fiddle player Julian Taylor and Richard Moss on guitar and they play a vibrant brand of Celtic folk music that will have your toes tapping one minute and the hairs standing on the back of your neck the next. 

Home Ground is a not-for-profit social enterprise which raises funds to assist vulnerable people to remain independent in their own homes.  This is done with advice and practical help to secure appropriate support services and funding when no other source of help can be found. 

This concert will raise funds for the Falklands Veterans Foundation and the Coming Home project who help returning service people who have been injured in theatres of war and specialises in providing specially-adapted accommodation to enable the seriously injured to remain independent.
