The Archers take the stage at the Winspear Centre Saturday

For the first time in over a year, local band The Archers will take the stage in Sidney at the Mary Winspear Centre.

The band, made up of Liam Moes, Sandy Hughes, Liam McLaren and Ethan Caleb (Archer’s bass player Robert McMullen announced his exit from the band Nov. 5) has been busy touring since their last show in Sidney, including two tours that took them across the country.

“Because it’s been so long since we played in Sidney I think it will be really fun,” said Moes.

“We’ve changed a lot and grown a lot as a band since then and I think people will really like our sound.”

The indie-folk band is now in the process of finishing their album which is slated for release in May of next year.

“We did an Indiegogo campaign in February to raise money to produce the album and we’re really looking forward to completing that,” Moes said.

Tickets for the show which takes place Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Charlie White Theatre at the Mary Winspear Centre are $15 and are available through the box office.

Joining The Archers will be local band Reverie.
