Hailed as “one of Britain’s finest song interpreters” by Sing Out, Archie Fisher is Scottish folk-singing royalty. Born in Glasgow to a large musical family (which produced three professional singers: Archie and his sisters Cilla and Ray), he released his first album in 1968 and has followed it up with a bounty of beautiful music since.
Along with a stellar international performing career spanning five decades, Archie presented BBC Radio Scotland’s award-winning programme, “Travelling Folk” for 27 years. And as recognition of his talent and longevity, Archie was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2006 and received an MBE for services to traditional music in 2007.
Chloe Matharu is an award-winning Scottish Indian singer-songwriter and harpist on the West Coast of Scotland. Many of her songs draw on her time as a Navigational Officer in the Merchant Navy, inspired by the natural world as experienced at sea. On tour she performs solo with her harp in English, Scots and Welsh. Her music offers "an intriguing insight into a new tradition of maritime folk music with thoughtful song writing embellished by her voice and superb harp playing" (The Herald)
