Presented by Queensland Poetry Festival
Fresh from an international tour, Archie Roach will be sharing songs from his soon to be released new album, Let Love Rule, alongside some of his classic hits.
Three decades since the release of his debut multiple award winning album, Charcoal Lane, Archie's work continues to reflect the struggles and issues facing Indigenous Australians as well as exploring universal themes of love, friendship, family and community.
Archie will be supported by NAIDOC & WAMi award-winning artist Gina Williams (WA), whose mother and grandmother were both part of the stolen generations. Described as a ‘modern day Edith Piaf’, Gina sings beautifully crafted personal songs in the critically endangered Noongar language.
Legendary Indigenous poet and activist (and proud Yugambeh man) Lionel Fogarty and one of Australia’s most exciting new writers, Ellen van Neerven (of Mununjali and Dutch heritage), will also read to open up the night.
Note: QPF would also like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we create this festival, the Turrbul and Jagera peoples.
