Fly Away (Loosely Woven)

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A free, light-hearted, folky, acoustic concert/cabaret . . .

Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform two to three new shows each year.  ‘Fly Away’ is the first concert for 2018.  There will be 8 performances including two at Humph Hall.  The concert will feature 21 instrumentalists and singers.

The program includes a number of songs which address social injustice and other important issues:
  • Phyl Lobl’s classic exploration of Australian racism, ‘Dark-eyed Daughter’
  • Pete Morton’s powerful ‘Another Train’
  • Two of Graeme Moore’s songs about the Tolpuddle Martyrs
  • Jackson Browne’s challenging song ‘The Rebel Jesus’
  • Holly Near’s equally challenging song ‘I ain’t afraid’ which condemns the atrocities done in the name of religion
  • Rosie Lister’s ‘No one stands alone’
  • Judy Small’s celebration of women over the generations, ‘Women of our time’
There are a number of well known songs:
  • Ruby Tuesday (The Rolling Stones)
  • Flame Trees (Jimmy Barnes)
  • Mustang Sally (Wilson Pickett)
  • After the gold rush (Neil Young)
  • I’ll fly away (from ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’)
Some other really beautiful songs:
  • O can ye sew cushions? (trad. Scottish)
  • May Night on the Mountains (Henry Lawson)
  • Rose of Allendale (trad. Irish)
  • Four Strong Winds
  • Somos el barco
and a bit of fun with:
  • Tom Lehrer’s hilarious ‘The Irish Ballad’
Instruments this time will include violins, flutes, saxophones, harp, clarinet, concertina, accordion, harmonium, recorder, melodica, guitars, keyboard and percussion.
