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. 'Touch the Sky' is the group's third concert for 2016 and will feature 19 instrumentalists and singers. 

The eclectic program will include a few Christmassy items such as:
  • I heard the bells on Christmas Day
  • See a Baby
  • the Pogue's iconic 'Fairytale of New York'
  • This is my wish
  • Aretha Franklin's version of 'The Christmas Song'
  • and a gorgeous arrangement of 'You Raise Me Up'
a few 'popular' favourites:
  • Overkill (Men at Work)
  • Blue Bayou (Linda Rondstadt)
  • Fanny Mae (Sha Na Na)
a bit of fun:
  • I just don't look naked anymore!
and lots more!
Instruments this time will include violins, flutes, harps, saxophone, concertina, glockenspiel, xylophone, 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!"

We have just attended the last "Touch The Sky" at Humph Hall. Could I just pass on to the performers that I thought it was the BEST EVER "Loosley Woven". The singing was outstanding. From the Nick Cave number to the more humourous songs-just brilliant. Well done everyone and thank you Wayne & Gial for your hard work and hospitality.
