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. 'Spanish Lady' is the second of these for 2015 with 26 instrumentalists and singers. The concert will close with a spectacular arrangement of the traditional title song.

  • After the gold rush (Neil Young)
  • Beethoven’s 7th Symphony (Allegretto)
a few Australian songs:
  • The Rain Song (The Mae Trio)
  • The Shearer’s Lament
  • Voices in your head (original song by Greg Thompson)
a few ‘rock’ favourites:
  • Rubber Ball
  • Sweet Caroline
  • Everybody’s Talkin'
and a number of ‘fun’ songs:
  • The Cat’s Duet (Rossini)
  • Lydia the tattooed lady (Groucho Marx)
  • Always a bridesmaid
  • Older Ladies
Instruments this time will include violins, flutes, harps, clarinets, concertinas, accordion, glockenspiel, guitars, mandolin, 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!"
