The Hallowed Land

by Bruce Archer

Masterful finger-picking and slide guitar punctuate the highly autobiographic lyrics of this eclectic, sometimes rollicking, sometimes reflective, genre-bending paean to traditional story-telling.

Album Notes
My finger-picking and slide guitar styling are my evolving constant—always progressing in depth, complexity, and clarity, yet an instrumental voice that has always been authentically my own. This “blue folk” style mixes the elements of blues, bluegrass, country, and folk that have resonated and stuck with me over the years. It’s my calling card that opens doors and minds to my music.

For years I’ve been writing songs that consider the ties between place and the development of ideas and relationships against the backdrop of one’s history or foundation. THE HALLOWED LAND explores being present in those personally sacred places—whether it’s returning, pursuing, or never leaving—and how our relationships define what is hallowed.

Each song falls loosely along a continuum from a growing sense of displacement, to the decisive moment of realization it’s time to move on, to the recognition that our interpersonal connections and the love shared within them supersede place.

This project was made possible by a grant provided by the Five Wings Arts Council with funds from the McKnight Foundation.
