Join Avalon Amnesty Group and Loosely Woven for a night of live music to support refugees.
The ‘all new’ program includes a number of songs that address many of the serious issues of our time including:
Sydney-based folkie Brian Jonathon’s incisive song ‘Christmas for Refugees’ bemoaning the appalling way our government treats refugees,
Archie Roach’s celebration of life ‘Liyarn Ngarn’,
Emmylou Harris’s heart-wrenching song ‘My name is Emmett Till’ about a ‘black boy’ who was lynched because he dared to speak to a ‘white’ girl,
Jenny Fitzgibbon’s ‘Carbon is the world’s worst friend’,
Australian singer/songwriter Anna Smyrk’s powerful song ‘Home’ which makes very real the ongoing disaster that is climate change.
There are also a number of well-known songs including songs by ABBA, Mark Knopfler, Men at Work, and Vera Lynn (We’ll Meet Again — hence the name of the concert)
There are also some lesser known songs.
Instruments this time will include violin, viola, cello, flute, saxophone, trumpet, harp, mandolin, glockenspiel, accordion, concertina, guitars, ukuleles, keyboard and percussion.
