Archie Fisher

Biographical

image  Archie Fisher (1939-) — After Ray (Fisher) married and moved to Tyneside (see Ray & Archie), Archie embarked a solo career. Fisher's first album, Archie Fisher, was released in 1968. Around that time, Fisher also began his decades-long association with the BBC; Fisher wrote original songs for BBC documentaries on subjects like rural island communities in the Hebrides, and also appeared on radio and television music programs with regularity. Eventually, Fisher began working regularly with the BBC as a producer of radio documentaries and features; in the '80s, he inherited the series Traveling Folk, which he now produces and hosts. Fisher's recorded output, for someone with such a long and prolific career, is surprisingly sparse. Fisher has been much more active both as a live performer at festivals and concerts around the world (he directed the much-respected Edinburgh Folk Festival from 1988 to 1992) and as a producer for other artists, including several albums by the duo of Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy and the Scottish group Silly Wizard.
