ARCHIE ROACH – Performance at Mii Pudnanthi Gathering
Archie will be performing songs from his 2012-2018 3CD box set of his live recordings, called The Concert Collection.
In November 2012, Archie Roach walked on-stage at the Playhouse Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne, for the Australasian World Music Expo. And so began his extraordinary return to the concert stage.
With a thirteen-piece band and ten-voice gospel choir, Archie launched Into The Bloodstream, his first album of new music in five years.
In the two years preceding the release, the singer faced unimaginable challenges, including a stroke, lung cancer and the loss of his partner in life and in music, Ruby Hunter.
Hailed by many as a rebirth, Into The Bloodstream was acclaimed as his strongest in years with shows being recorded from both the Arts Centre Melbourne concert in November 2012 and from the State Theatre for the Sydney Festival in January 2013.
Then in 2016 Archie made another triumphant record with a title that resonated everywhere – Let Love Rule – entirely written around the concept of love, “a willingness to love all people”.
The Let Love Rule concert was recorded live in May 2017 at the inaugural Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival at the Playhouse Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne, featured the sublime voices of both the Dhungala Children’s Choir and Short Black Opera.
Then in May 2018 the beloved and award-winning Australian trio Tiddas reformed especially to honour the unearthing of Archie’s new album, Dancing With My Spirit, a pre-production “demo” album recorded over two decades earlier by producer/musician Jen Anderson that had been shelved and virtually forgotten.
This album saw Archie exploring his spirituality and showcased the sublime voices of Archie and Tiddas – Amy Saunders, Lou Bennett and Sally Dastey.
The Dancing With My Spirit concert was recorded at their Hamer Hall performance at Arts Centre Melbourne on May 6th 2018.
On Its way in November a very special cultural afternoon for Auburn School children and Auburn Seniors

A Hats event with a difference … ” Where Song began”’ is a musical celebration of Australia’s birds and how they shaped the world.
[Two of Australia’s most adventurous classical musicians, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello), are performing their beautiful multimedia show, Where Song Began. Based on Tim Low’s bestselling book, this performance tells the story of the evolution of song, featuring music spanning 300 years, stunning visual projections and an immersive soundscape. The experience has been described as “like being sung to by the country”. this 50-minute performance explores the Australian origins of song, ‘the birds that can sing’. Such is their evolutionary significance, ‘one may ask whether human music would have reached the heights it has, had the first songbird not sung in an Australian rainforest.’
The performers: Simone Slattery was a 2018 Churchill Fellow, received a PhD in Music Performance from the University of Adelaide and performs regularly with Australia’s finest ensembles. Anthony Albrecht is an Australian graduate of The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program and enjoys an international career.

Making beautiful music with a wild gypsy heart.
Their songs speak of the stars and the moon, of pussycats and preachers, of love and death,
and their live shows are sweet, menacing and danceable in equal doses!
