Archie Roach: Tell Me Why

 A sharing of stories and songs from Archie’s new memoir and companion album.

Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was. He is Archie Roach.

His new memoir Tell Me Why (Simon and Schuster) is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and also of a great love story. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.

Roach shares the joy, pain and hope he found on his journey through music that made him the legendary singer-songwriter and storyteller that he is today – beloved and respected by fans worldwide.

Archie will be joined on tour by musicians Steve Magnusson and Sam Anning.
