Archie Roach is truly a remarkable person. He is a gifted songwriter with a catalogue of songs that capture the human spirit in a powerful and unique way. When his debut album “Charcoal Lane” was released in 1990, the impact was immediate.Songs like “Took the Children Away” speak to the heart, telling the tragic story of the suffering and pain experienced by the “stolen generation”. Do the Yarra Valley was privileged to spend some time with Archie and asked him about his early years growing up in the Yarra Valley and his recent album, Into The Bloodstream that celebrates the joy of being alive, something Archie feels deeply, as he explains in our interview. 

For the first time in his thirty + recording career Archie has released a 3CD box set of his live recordings. Titled Archie Roach – The Concert Collection 2012 – 2018 you can order this special collection, which includes a 24-page booklet of photos from across the three concerts.
