LOOSELY WOVEN joins with AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL in a free community concert at Avalon Baptist Church (2 George St.).
Wayne Richmond, the leader of the group, is one of the Peninsula’s inspirational leaders in giving live music to the community. The group will include 21 instrumentalists and singers. Last year Wayne received an award from Amnesty International for his wonderful work! This concert will celebrate the 23 years of contributing to Amnesty’s great work.
Loosely Woven encourage audience participation in their concerts which are always lots of fun, and you can enjoy a musical treat and also support human rights by coming because voluntary donations will go to Amnesty International.
The program includes a number of songs which address social injustice and other important issues. There are also some well known songs made famous by The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Barnes, Wilson Pickett and Neil Young, and some really beautiful folk songs and a bit of fun with Tom Lehrer’s hilarious ‘The Irish Ballad’.
We look forward to seeing you there!
