Lullaby (Loosely Woven) @ Tea Gardens
August 3, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 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. Loosely Woven is the main reason Gial and I bought the former Allambie Heights Uniting Church and established Humph Hall in the first place.
‘Lullaby’ is the second concert for 2019. There will be 9 public performances including two at Humph Hall. See the Loosely Woven web site for details of all performances.
The concert will feature 17 instrumentalists and singers.
The ‘all new’ program includes lots of well-known songs:
- Blame it on the Bossa Nova
- One Kiss
- A man without love
- Devil Woman
- Fields of Gold
- Ain’t he sweet
- Route 66
- Just an old fashioned girl
- Mr Sandman
Some songs which address social injustice and other important issues such as climate change:
- Big Bill – a song by Terry Piper about the way mining companies have exploited Australia’s indigenous people
- Confounds the Science – a very clever but poignant parody lamenting the lack of serious action by governments to combat climate change

- Songs of home (Celtic Thunder)
- I have a dream (Nana Mouskouri)
- Lullaby (Ben Caplan)
