About Robyn Archer: The (Other) Great American Songbook

Following the success of Que Reste T’il and Dancing on the Volcano, comes The (Other) Great American Songbook, which offers a different portrait of America over time through song, covering everything from the Civil War and The Great Depression to many of its citizens’ favourite vices.

Accompanied by longtime colleagues Michael Morley (piano) and George Butrumlis (accordion), Robyn (vocals and guitar) delights with an epic range of music by Stephen Foster, Rodgers and Hart, Bob Dylan, Pink and the odd Broadway hit.

Robyn Archer says of the show “I’ve been aware for so many years of so many different versions of The Great American Songbook: wonderful songs, but they all come from the world of entertainment and rarely reflect the complexity of American life.

“I decided to create a program of songs from the other side” Robyn continues “songs that reflected decades of strong dissident voices, and on the lighter side the songs about human vices, reflecting a more authentic span of the American character. Michael, George and I have so much fun performing this program and it shows you can tackle some of the darker sides of life with just as much verve and fun and laughter as those that try to pretend that life is always a bed of roses and romance”

Robyn shows no sign of slowing down, and continues to deliver her punchy, thoughtful and most of all, her musically outstanding vocal range to audiences all over the country.
