Bruce Archer at Roundhouse Brewery
Bruce Archer plays a rollicking combination of blues, bluegrass, country, and folk that doesn’t fit tidily into a single genre. His finger-picking and slide guitar display a level of talent and mastery that can only come from 40-plus years of sifting through musical styles and keeping the bits that resonate with him. He coaxes from his guitar an instrumental voice that is authentically his own.
Masterful finger-picking and slide guitar punctuate the highly autobiographic lyrics of his latest release, THE HALLOWED LAND. This eclectic, genre-bending album is a paean to traditional story-telling. (This project was made possible by a grant provided by the Five Wings Arts Council with funds from the McKnight Foundation.)
