This concert is in honour of Mr Cyril ``Chisel`` Archer, founding member of the Derby Country Music Club and renowned vocalist. Mr Archer organised and performed at hundreds of events during his life. He was a mentor to many young musicians and bands, he organised and was MC at the Derby Country Music Club events since the 1990s.
Mr Archer was also a founding director of Derby Media Aboriginal Corporation (and many other corporations in the Kimberley) the home of Larkarrdi Radio 6 DBY. Without Mr Archer`s hard work Kimberley Country Music would not be what it is today.
