At 4pm on Sunday 30 April, Loosely Woven, consisting of 15 instrumentalists and singers, returns to Avalon with their brand new concert, ‘Bright Blue Rose’.
The program includes Robb Johnson’s powerful song ‘More than enough’ which highlights how there so often seems to be more than enough money for “new ways to kill, but never enough for the poor”. There is also a new song which extols the virtues of ‘our ABC’!
There are a number of well-known songs including
o One Fine Day (The Chiffons)
o Put a little love in your heart
o I say a little prayer (Aretha Franklin)
o Baby did a bad bad thing (Chris Isaak)
o O mio babbino caro (Puccini aria)
o May it be (Enya)
o Amarillo by morning (George Strait)
o The Barcarolle Duet (Offenbach)
o Waltz of my heart
And some lesser known songs:
o When you say nothing at all (Ronan Keating)
o The Bush Girl (The Seekers)
o Song to Sing (Archie Roach)
o Bright Blue Rose (Mary Black)
o Sydney is a friendly town (written by local songwriter Richard Blake)
Instruments this time will include violins, cello, flute, recorder, clarinet, saxophone, harp, guitars, keyboard and percussion.
The concert is free but donations to Amnesty International are appreciated. Light refreshments will be served.
