 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised this story contains names and images of deceased people. Archie Roach’s family have given permission for his name and image to be shared.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of talented musician and courageous story teller, Archie Roach.

Archie was an inspiration for so many, a passionate truth-teller and leaves an incredible legacy on this country.

Growing up in Lilydale, Archie had a special connection to Yarra Ranges and we were so lucky to have him perform many times in the Yarra Ranges over the years, including as part of our Reconciliation Week events.

We are saddened to have to announce that the performance planned for this Saturday, August 6 - Archie Roach: Tell Me Why, will not be going ahead.

Our thoughts are with Archie’s family, friends and everyone who knew and loved him during this sad time.
