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. 

In recent years he faced the sudden death of his life partner and musical collaborator of 38 years, Ruby Hunter, and went on to survive a debilitating stroke and lung cancer. Forcibly removed at only two from loving parents, six other siblings and his community, Archie’s early years were equally traumatic. He became a teenage alcoholic and drifted into destitution while searching for his identity and place.

Tell Me Why, the title of his new memoir and companion album, is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and of a great love story. It is an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.

Archie 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. Be moved by Archie’s journey, accompanied by a full band, on Saturday, April 18, at 7.30pm. Tickets $27-$60 Bookings: 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au
