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.

'Going Home' (named after the beautiful opening song based on a theme from Dvorak's New World Symphony) is the first brand new concert for 2017.  There will be 12 performances including up north in Tea Gardens and North Arm Cove and two here at Humph Hall.  The concert will feature 24 instrumentalists and singers. 

The program will include the usual wide variety of items including a number of well known songs such as:
  • Bright Side of the Road (Van Morrison)
  • Killing me Softly
  • The Rose
  • O mio babbino caro (Puccini)
  • Bei Mir Bist Du Shein (Yiddish)
  • Sway
  • All I ever need is you (Sonny & Cher)
  • Black Velvet Band
a few Australian songs:
  • Down City Streets (Archie Roach & Ruby Hunter)
  • Oh Canada! (Missy Higgins)
  • Small Things (The Audreys)
  • Ray's Lament
a couple of New Zealand songs:
  • Hoki Mai
  • Anchor Me (Greenpeace)
a couple of original Tanzanian songs:
  • The Wind
  • It was nice meeting you
and lots more!
Instruments this time will include flutes, saxophones, clarinet, trumpet, harp, glockenspiel, xylophone, concertina, harmonium, melodica, guitars, keyboard and percussion.

"I LOVE being moved by the beautiful and varied song choices, stunning arrangements, the message of the songs and the emotional connection to the songs."

" . . . this fascinating and fun-filled group provided an excellent afternoon of entertainment!"

"Once again a great performance.  I have seen performances by choirs this year and they are not a patch on your concert . . . the quality of the performance was exceptional this year.  I have never met anyone who did not leave one of your concerts without their spirits greatly uplifted."

"Loosely Woven is unique. An amoebic mass of performing musicians, singers and dancers who range from absolute beginners to the classically trained and even boasting a music professor. The group, ranging in age from 20 to 70, ebbs and flows with a constant influx of newcomers, frequent recidivists and a small core of foundation members."

"Loosely Woven groupies never know what the next concert will bring, and that's the way we like it! Keep your eyes peeled for the next one and make a big effort to attend – you won't regret it!"
