Scottish folk singer coming to Qualicum Beach

The Nov. 19 show is part of The Beaton Home house concert

Archie Fisher, a world-renowned Scottish singer and songwriter, is coming to Qualicum Beach on Saturday.

The Nov. 19 show is part of The Beaton Home house concert.

A press release for the upcoming concert, says Fisher is one of the finest traditional singers of all time.

“Archie Fisher is recognized as Scotland’s foremost folk troubadour with a career spanning over four decades.”

The release also says Fisher’s talent transcends generations and genres, as Fisher worked with Scottish indie band Frightened Rabbit, who had him sing on their song Work.

Fisher came out of the United Kingdom folk scene that spawned the Incredible String Band, John Renbourn, Steeleye Span and Bert Jansch.

Fisher has released several solo albums since releasing his first album in the late 1960s.

He also has received an MBE, which is an award given by the queen to an individual for outstanding service to the community or for local hands-on service.

For more than 25 years, Fisher hosted BBC Radio Scotland’s award-winning Travelling Folk program. In 2007, he was inducted into the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame.

In late 2015, Fisher released his latest album A Silent Song, which was his seventh solo album.

Tickets are $25 and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m.
