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.

'River' (named after the beautiful Joni Mitchell song) is the third concert for 2017.  There will be 9 performances including two here at Humph Hall.  The concert will feature 21 instrumentalists and singers. 

The program will include the usual wide variety of items including a few well known songs such as:
  • Greatest Love of All (Whitney Houston)
  • River (Joni Mitchell)
  • Heart like a wheel (Linda Ronstadt)
  • Bless this House
  • Act Naturally (The Beatles)
  • Brand New Key (Melanie)
some unusual arrangements of well known Christmas songs:
  • Silent Night (a stunningly beautiful arrangement!)
  • A Babe is Born
  • Bring a torch
a performance of the mini-cantata 'A Spiritual Folk Song',
and lots more!
Instruments this time will include violins, flute, harp, glockenspiel, recorder, 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!"
