Join us for a concert entitled “Evening Primrose”, from local group Loosely Woven, consisting of 19 singers and instrumentalists. The concert will feature a variety of songs – some funny, some moving – suitable for all ages. This is a free event but donations to Amnesty are welcome
The ‘all new’ program includes some songs addressing social justice issues including a fabulous song by Australian singer/songwriter Khristian Mizzi called ‘We ain’t all equal’, Eric Bogle’s powerful song ’Shelter’ and a song by local Northern Beaches songwriter Ian Macintosh related to the plight of Sydney’s homeless people.
There are also a number of well-known songs including:
• You’ve got a friend
• Unchained Melody
• L’Accordeoniste (Edith Piaf)
• Lady Madonna (The Beatles)
• I wanna be loved by you (Marilyn Munro)
• Nessun Dorma
• Little Things (One Direction)
• Back in Baby’s Arms (Amy Grant)
• Could I have this dance? (Anne Murray)
Some lesser known but equally fabulous songs:
• Love in the morning (Archie Roach)
• Blue Moon of Kentucky
• Both Sides the Tweed (Mary Black)
• Stop (Duffy)
• Standing by my Christmas Tree (Cara Dillon)
• In Spite of Ourselves (John Prine & Iris DeMent)
Instruments will include violins, flute, saxophone, harp, melodicas, glockenspiel, harmonium, accordion, concertina, guitars, ukuleles, keyboard and percussion.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
