Archie Roach - Tell Me Why
Geelong Arts Centre presents Archie Roach - Tell Me Why as part of their 2021 Winter Escape Season.
A new work sharing stories and songs from Archie Roach’s award-winning memoir and companion album, Tell Me Why is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience, strength of spirit as well as a great love story. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love, heartbreak, family, community, survival, and renewal, showcasing the healing power of music.
Tell Me Why, also the title of the companion album Bloodlines, considers Roach’s 18 song ‘magnum opus’, re-imagining 11 songs which have defined his extraordinary career. This includes two songs that were previously written but never recorded, two songs of early influence as well as three brand new recordings.
Roach voices joy, pain, and hope within these songs that he found on his journey to becoming the legendary singer, songwriter, and storyteller that he is today; beloved and respected by fans worldwide.
Archie will be joined on tour by special guest, Sally Dastey, musicians Steve Magnusson, Sam Anning and Erkki Veltheim.
The Geelong Arts Centre 2021 Winter Escape Season is proudly supported by Major Artistic Partner, Deakin University, Innovation Partner, Costa Asset Management, and Programming and Event Sponsors, TAC and Tuckers Funeral and Bereavement Services.
