Archie Roach comes to Camelot Lounge as part of the Vivid Festival this year to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of his iconic debut album Charcoal Lane.

Charcoal Lane was co-produced by Steve Connolly and Paul Kelly and rocketed Roach into the national consciousness. The album won Roach two ARIA awards, achieved gold sales, and, unprecedentedly, an international ‘Human Rights Achievement Award’ for the song ‘Took The Children Away’.

This is a rare opportunity to see Archie in the beautifully intimate surrounds of Camelot Lounge and hear the stories that inspired these iconic songs over two very special nights.
