At this family holiday time of the year I thought to share a thought for the ever-admirable Archie Roach. As most readers will be aware Archie lost his life-long partner and fellow musician Ruby Hunter in February last year. He then fell ill and suffered a stroke in October from which is he still recovering. Here’s hoping that he is recovering well and surrounded by family.
Archie is one of Australia’s most beautiful singer-song writers. He has a certain knack for writing songs in a way that just ‘tells it as it is.’ This, along with the sound of his singing voice, makes it hard not to be moved.
