Archie Roach - Tell Me Why

Archie Roach - Tell Me Why

Archie shares stories and songs from his new memoir and companion album in this special Reconciliation Week event.

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.

His new memoir ‘Tell Me Why’ 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.

The companion album ‘Tell Me Why’ re-imagines eleven songs which have defined his extraordinary career, together with brand new songs and recordings.

Roach voices the joy, pain and hope he found on his path through these songs to become the legendary singer- songwriter and storyteller that he is today – beloved and respected by fans worldwide.

Duration: 100 minutes including an interval

Review:

“He condensed those emotions of the Stolen Generations into a few minutes of music that stands as one of the great Australian humanitarian artistic statements.” The Australian
